Three plastic surgeons have since moved to court to protest against the manner in which KMPDB is conducting its investigations into June’s tragic death.

The three – Stanley Khainga, Evans Cherono and Martin Ajujo claim the investigation is mere witch-hunt. They have faulted KMPDB for excluding Nairobi Hospital and one doctor Reuben Okioma, in the disciplinary proceedings over June’s death.

“All indications are that the KMPDB intends to lay blame on the trio since Nairobi Hospital and Dr Okioma have been exempted from the investigations notwithstanding that the deceased met her death while on their hands,” the trio’s lawyer Prof Kiama Wangui said.
