A new twist has taken its toll on the death of Baby Travis who died at Kenyatta National Hospital(KNH) with a fork Jembe lodged in his head.
The hospital now claims that the fork in the baby’s head was aimed at the mother.
KNH claims the mother(wife) had earlier said Baby Travis was a victim of a domestic row between his parents.
Appearing before Senate’s Health Committee led by Jackson Mandago, KNH management yesterday said that Baby Travis’ mother, Judy Muthoni, had said that the fork ‘jembe’ had been aimed at her during a domestic brawl with her husband.
The hospital’s chief executive officer, Evanson Kamuri, told the lawmakers that when Muthoni learned about the death of her son, she broke down, lamenting that the fork jembe had been aimed at her.
“When we broke the news of the death of the baby, the mother started to scream in distress, revealing how her husband had killed her baby. She was wailing, saying how the ‘jembe’ was aimed at her,” said Kamuri.
According to him, the injury sustained by Baby Travis was so severe that it could not have been inflicted by a child.
“It was a severe injury that could not have been inflicted by other children while playing,” Kamuri held.
While responding to the Senators’ questions regarding the minor’s death, CEO Kamuri explained that when the child was received at KNH, the doctors could not have immediately rushed the boy to the theatre because he had lost too much blood.
“We first needed to give him blood. And being a baby, that process is much slower because, if we could have given him too much blood at once, there was a risk of cardiac arrest,” explained Kamuri.
According to Kamuri, Muthoni was economical with the truth.
