The exercises kicked on on Monday with hundreds already screened of different types of cancer including; breast, cervical and prostate cancer.

In a Facebook post, the flashy city boss argued more residents to visit the facility for a free screening. 

"It is because of this reason that my administration is appealing to all Nairobians to come for our free cancer screening exercise that is currently on going at the mama lucy hospital," said Sonko. 

In a video he posted on his wall, various people can be seen queuing for the free screening. 

"In PSA, that is for prostrate cancer we have had 38 and so far seven have become suspicious," said the Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr Musa Mohamed. 

Among those who had been screened,  a few were suspected to have cancer. 

Governor Sonko came out to point out that cancer is killing both the rich and the poor. Giving few examples if prominent Kenyans who passed away from the disease, Sonko noted that not even your money will save you from the disease. 

Recently, the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth and the late Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso died from cancer at the Nairobi Hospital.
