We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

The government today morning acted swiftly to save a life of 18 year old girl from Kajiado West who is suffering from a rare condition that has disfigured her.

The Office of the President in the morning directed Kajiado County Commissioner, Harsama Kello, to hire a helicopter and trace the family of Mwosia Lenjoi who we reported yesterday as great pain.

Kello sought the direction of the girl’s home in Oloibortoto, on the boundary of Kajiado and Narok counties, from Kajiado News Update.

But before the commissioner could take off from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport, Mwosia was already in Kiserian on her way to St. Mary’s hospital after suffering convulsions.

Her father, John Lenjoi, was forced to call his neighbours after her daughter’s condition worsened and his villagers raised some little money to take her to hospital in Nairobi.

Pastor John Mashal hired a vehicle for the Lenjoi’s family to be ferried to Nairobi and a team from the Ministry of Health led by CS, Cleopa Mailu welcomed the ailing Mwosia and arrangement was made for her to be admitted to Kenyatta National Hospital.

Lenjoi said; “At least our prayers have been heard by God. We as family are happy that the government has agreed to help us treat our first born daughter. We have not been sleeping for the last two years.”

His wish, which he factored in the family prayers, was that her daughter is admitted to KNH or any other better medical facility.

Mwosia dropped out of school two years ago after she was overwhelmed by a cancerous growth on her tongue.
Her father on Tuesday said they have visited many hospitals. The family cannot afford the high costs of treatment and medication and Mwosia’s condition was worsening.

Family friend Joe Sirai early last year connected John to a foreign philanthropist who paid for Mwosia’s surgery in China.

She seemed well after the operation, but a month after arriving from China, the growth grew back – this time much faster. Mwosia is in great pain.

An about-turn to a life that was promising. John’s herd of cattle, which sustained the family, has perished in the drought. They now depend on well-wishers for upkeep.

John appealed to the government and well-wishers to come to Mwosia’s rescue.

He said he has nowhere to turn to and prays for divine intervention. He prays regularly for his first born daughter.

Mwosia cannot eat solid food. She survives only on milk and uses a straw to drink it.

“We pray day and night for our daughter. We have no one to turn to but God. Kenyatta National Hospital requires a lot of money. I can’t even afford bus fare to Nairobi,” the distraught father said.
