After Jimmy Gait Cancer Misdiagnosis – How Common is it in Kenya??

Jimmy Gait was misdiagnosed by his Kenyan doctors with throat cancer. Yes, you read right, can you imagine the shock, pain, emotional torture that must have been.

While Kenyan doctors recommended throat surgery that would have left him voiceless ,a specialist in India has recommended change of diet to reduce acidity.

Gait, who flew to India for specialized treatment, said medical tests done on him in India revealed that he was misdiagnosed by Kenyan doctors.

Medical misdiagnosis is top 3 causes of preventable death.

The Kenyan Gospel singer on a YouTube video further said that he was shocked that Kenyan doctors quickly recommended surgery before carrying out any tests on him, suggesting that they were only out for his money.

He explains how he was taken through comprehensive medical tests in India to establish what exactly he was suffering from.

He also stated that some of them seemed to focus too much on making money from their patients.

“I am shocked that a doctor would rather make money from me than give me proper treatment,” he says.


As Kenyans we seriously need to discuss issues of doctors misdiagnosing patients.Just like medicine is trial and error so are some doctors.Not every professional doctor you see will necessary be good for you .

Don’t hesitate to seek a second opinion!!

We are happy to know Jimmy Gait is doing well and will soon be back to making music.
