Martha Karua saves the day as stranded woman gives birth in the open just outside hospital (Photos)

NARC Kenya leader Martha Karua has wowed Kenyans by her action. The Kirinyaga gubernatorial aspirant saved the life of an infant born outside a dispensary.

Nurses’ strike has paralyzed service delivery at government hospitals across the country. The effect of the strike became evident when Martha Karua was campaigning in Mutithi, Mwea constituency.

The NARC Kenya leader cut short her campaign after she was informed that a woman in labour at a nearby dispensary was without help due to the ongoing strike.

Karua rushed to the dispensary only to find the stranded woman outside without anyone to help her, she galvanized a group of good samaritans and some dispensary staff to assist the woman as she delivered outside the dispensary which was barricaded by her team to safeguard the mother’s privacy.

The woman delivered a healthy baby girl who was named after Martha Karua. Kenyans on social media gave Karua thumbs up and urged the government to end the strike as only the poor were suffering.
