Right from birth, I have always thought that my country, Nigeria is the only country within Africa where people suffers in pain deep within their heart, and then show some smiles outside just for people not to know what they are passing through. This is totally bad and it really saddens my heart, this is not acceptable in the society. This time around, it’s not only in Nigeria but Africa at large, we all have to stop the evil behavior we tend to show towards people that are less privileged. We all have to think positive towards the poor.
To be honest, if you’ve been poor before, you will understand that it’s actually a sad thing because if the woman in this video happens to be rich, she who have been able to afford her maternity bills and also deliver in the hospital instead of suffering herself through pains and humiliations.
In front of a well equipped hospital, a woman was seen labouring in pains and severe suffering after she was denied an access to maternity in Kenya.
The video of the woman circulated the internet as she was seen lying on the road in front of a hospital called Pumwani Maternity Hospital. She was screaming for help, crying as she was in severe pains while other women around quickly covered her up with some clothes and wrappers.
All efforts to make sure that she got the best treatment in the hospital near by seemed abortive as the professionals there refused to hear them out. More moves were made as well when those women around started creating some scenes maybe those doctors at the hospital would pity them but till the end, no help was rendered.
Unfortunately, the woman who was in labour started screaming for help when she was due to deliver but instead people ran away from her and she was left alone labouring. The moment I saw that video, tears rolled out of my eyes.
Recall that, Kenyans were used to delivering babies themselves before modernisation came into the country but yet no one gave a helping hand to the woman Instead they were screaming.
This woman groan in pains, screamed for help, cried, did all she could but yet, no help was rendered. Where are we really heading to in Africa?
What made me sad was that, the hospital that was in the video was even a goverment-owned. So why on earth won’t they support the woman who is also a citizen of the country. Were the hospital not built because of people like her?
The person who posted this video online stated that the dying pregnant woman was refused access into the hospital and no services was rendered to her.
I really weep for Kenya and Africa at large. I weep for the poor who can’t afford the life they want. I weep for every woman who go through pains while delivering. No one deserves to go through this pain.
The reason why she wasn’t able to get medical attention is still very much unknown. And with all the screaming, no one can outside to attend to her.
But according to people’s reactions, it seems the Kenyan goverment hadn’t been really performing well in the health sector.

It’s so painful and shameful, I wonder how the husband of this lady will feel if he watches the video, oh African leaders, where are you!

I hope we Nigerians we begin to praise our government for the kind of care and support they’ve given us. Can you even treat an animal like this?
