KOT Reacts After Karen Hospital Denies Claims of Negligence

Yesterday, Kenya’s comedy icon the late actor Charles Bukeko, popularly known as Papa Shirandula-who kicked the bucket at Karen Hospital- was laid to rest in his Nanderema upcountry home, Busia County.

Beatrice Andega, the surviving widow of the late Papa Shirandula had, at the celebrated comedian’s funeral called out Karen Hospital for medical negligence that might have led to his death.

“They didn’t consider his condition an emergency and he died while we were at the waiting bay. When he went to the hospital, he requested for three tests of malaria, pneumonia, and Covid-19 but the hospital concentrated only on COVID and ignored the rest,” Ms Andega said.

While speculations are nigh that the actor succumbed to the novel coronavirus, his father Cosmas Bukeko has denied the claims

“For now l cannot say anything about his illness until we sit with the hospital. I’ll travel to Nairobi and together with his wife, we shall engage a lawyer to get the proper information from the hospital,” he said.
