‘DEAD MAN’ WAKES UP SCREAMING IN KAPKATET HOSPITAL MORGUE
Peter Kigen is reported to have ‘Risen from the dead’ screaming after Morgue attendants began to cut parts of his body in routine to preserve the body.
The Senate has started an investigation into an incident where a person is claimed to have woken up screaming inside a morgue in Kericho moments after he was declared dead by doctors in Kapkatet Hospital.
The victim who was identified as Peter Kigen is said to have been declared dead by doctors at Kapkatet hospital in kericho County, before his body was transferred to the hospital's mortuary.
According to an Insider, Peter Kigen is reported to have ‘Risen from the dead’ screaming after Morgue attendants began to cut parts of his body in routine to preserve the body.
In a move to establish whether the hospital was negligent, the Senate Committee on health has kick-started an investigation into the incident, to see whether the family of the victim deserves compensation.
The Senate also plans to summon Dr Titus Ngululu who conducted the post-mortem and allegedly declared the victim dead
“The report on the death of Kigen was misleading and there is a possibility that doctor Ngululu excluded very sensitive information after the wrongful declaration that he was already dead,” Senator Abdullahi Ali explained.
The senators however suspect that the preservation chemicals might have led to his death thereafter.
