Baringo County Deputy Governor Jacob Chepkwony has dismissed claims of poor health services at the Kabarnet County Referral Hospital.
Speaking on Wednesday when he toured the facility, the Deputy Governor said the information being propagated on social media was misleading and malicious.
“The truth of the matter is that Kabarnet County Referral Hospital is operating well as evidenced by the high number of patients who are attended to on a daily basis both inpatient and outpatient,”said Chepkwony.
