Kenya Politician Slaps Nurse Four Times for not according him VIP Treatment by Idowu Olabode : October 11, 2016, 11:32:28 AM
The sense of entitlement among the Kenyan political class has for a long time been the subject of debate and has often exposed politicians to ridicule from members of the public.

This habit went a notch higher with the establishment of the devolved form of government that introduced 47 executive governors and thousands of MCAs - all fighting for prominence.

Boniface Wright Okenye, who is the vocal MCA for Basi Bogetaori Ward in Bobasi, adds on to the list of politicians who have landed themselves in trouble after he was accused of slapping a nurse on duty. The nurse apparently failed to address him as ‘mheshimiwa’ (honourable).

According to the nursing officer, Beatrice Omutiti, Mr Okenye slapped her three times at Oresi Health Centre claiming he was not served in a way matching his position in society.

“Okenye abused me and slapped me for not treating him the way he would have loved, like an MCA,” claimed nurse Omutiti.

According to Omutiti, the ward representative came to the hospital, knocked at the door thrice, but since she was attending to another patient in the maternity, she delayed to open the door to let him in.

She revealed that on opening the door, the furious MCA assaulted her with slaps.

“He (the MCA) had a patient who was in labour. He called me names; a prostitute, dog, lazy worker and referred to me by my tribe, the Luo. He threatened to call the Minister for Health which he did. He then gave me the phone. I explained everything to the minister,” the nurse narrated.

After the call, Omutiti said that the MCA slapped her the fourth time sending her to the floor and reminded her he was an honourable person.

The Nurses Association chairperson, Fredrick Oigo, did not take the issue lying down and threatened to mobilise other nurses to strike over the matter if justice was not served.

Kisii Central OCPD Francis Nguli assured that Mr Okenye would face the full force of the law. 

Incidentally, Okenye is facing assault charges after he threatened to shoot his wife over a domestic squabble arising from accusations of infidelity. He was arraigned in court and is currently out on a Sh100,000 bond.
