Kenyan herbalist feted over medicinal research

“Like the case of the 17-year -old Stella Wangui Wakiara from Gitugi girls school in Murang’a whom President Uhuru Kenyatta volunteered last week to donate money towards her kidney transplant in India. These things can be done here and we have proof,” he said
He gave a case of one patient Simon Kimani, whose health had deteriorated and after seeking treatment without success in the conventional hospitals, he was also referred to India as a matter of urgency if his life was to be saved.
“Mr Kimani was not so lucky since his trip abroad faced a major challenge and many families find themselves in such situations, lack of enough money for treatment and air ticket. His kidney had failed and it was to cost a whooping Sh2.5million to conduct the transplant. There was also the question of a donor, who had a healthy kidney and willing to donate.
Doctors like Dr Were, a neurosurgeon have said that just like other patients who have undergone kidney transplant, Wakiara will need an average of sh20, 000 every month for other medical attention after the operation.
“Fortunately, his family knew about the Murugu Natural & Nutritional Clinic and the services we offer and having listened to them, we embarked on what we have always done best, treatment using the herbal medicine necessary for the problem Mr Kimani faced. It was not long before he started showing signs of progress and today he is a healthy man, providing for his family, thanks to Murugu Natural & Nutritional Clinic,” he stated.
