Kisumu residents have protested against poor services in health facilities in the county.

The residents said that there were no drugs, no food forward patients at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital, Kisumu County Hospital and Ahero Subcounty Hospital.

The Kisumu Assembly held a debate and the MCAs expressed their disappointment at what was being witnessed in the city’s health sector, despite the county getting huge departmental allocation in the annual budget.

Most of the residents are now seeking health services in the neighboring counties of Homa Bay, Kericho, and Vihiga.

The MCAs formed a committee of nine members to visit the facilities across the county, document the status of the health sector and report back the findings to the assembly on Thursday next week.
