Today, I received the results for the fifty blood samples taken a couple of months ago from some of the affected people from Owino Ohuru and some came up positive for lead poisoning.
The County Government of Mombasa has set up a special ward at Port Reitz to cater specifically for the lead poisoning cases from and all victims will be treated free of any charges. We have taken doctors for special training on treating lead poisoning cases. I have also instructed the health department to take more samples to cover everyone exhibiting symptoms for lead poisoning.
The health department has already started transporting victims to the hospital for treatment. We urge the National Government to take action and hold the perpetrators of this heinous atrocity to account.
