Drunk man arrested performing abortion to a woman against her wish
A man was arrested on Saturday, in Kitale town performing an abortion to a pregnant mother.
It said the woman had visited the clinic for check up but the drunk man decided to terminate her pregnancy.
Painful loud screams from the woman got the attention of the Ministry of Health who were carrying out an inspection in private clinics in the town.
Dr.Jonathan Buturu, an officer from the Clinical Officers Council (COC), who confirmed the incident said they are yet to ascertain information from the suspect as he was drunk.
“We found someone who purports to be a nurse actually conducting an abortion and we managed to seize him. We have to see the papers, we have to confirm everything but the way he is, he is drunk so we can’t even trust what he is telling us,” he explained.
The woman was rushed to Kitale County Referral Hospital in critical condition.
