SAD: MOSES KURIA FORCED TO UNDERGO ANOTHER SURGERY
Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria is out of the country for surgery at American Hospital in Dubai.
The lawmaker revealed that the latest surgery was the seventh one he had undergone in a period of two months.
“Just woke up from the seventh surgery in two months. God is indeed faithful. Thank you all for the prayers Hon Cate Waruguru,”he wrote on his Facebook page on Wednesday, November 17.
In October, Kuria detailed how he sustained third-degree burns from an electric gadget that he was using to warm his body.
The MP, who had been receiving treatment at the Karen Hospital for around two weeks, narrated that due to his legs getting numb, a friend advised him to use the electric gadget to warm his feet .
The vocal Tanga Tanga lawmaker said on the fateful day, his feet literally exploded and after the hospital, he was informed that he had sustained third-degree burns.
Kuria said he had so far undergone three surgeries from the device that cost him KSh 250,000 to acquire.
“I was travelling and getting numb and tired and so this guy managed to convince me. I thought it was authorised and it was meant to do some blow burning of my feet. My feet exploded and when I came here the following day, they said I had third-degree burns,”he said.
Not approved for use
To his dismay, Kuria has come to learn that the electric gadget is not fully approved for use by the government further calling for a crackdown on such devices as they are hazardous for use by the public.
“It was meant to be a solution but it has made me go through three surgeries and many people are using this kind of thing but I urge Kenyans that using this kind of products outside the regulatory framework is extremely dangerous,”he said.
