People from the Western region are saddened following the news that the woman who gave birth to Quintuplets died while receiving treatment at The Moi Teaching And Referal Hospital.

Embakasi Member of Parliament, Babu Owino has pledged to support the surviving children of Evelyn Namukhula who died on Sunday after giving birth to five babies last month

Taking to Twitter, the vocal MP decried the Kenyan health system for “failing Kenyans” further expressing his condolences to the family of the deceased.

“I commit to support her family during this trying time. We will do our best to ensure her surviving children are looked after,” he wrote.

Ms. Namukhula sprung to the limelight when she gave birth to three girls and two boys through a Caesarean Section at Kakamega General Hospital on March 13, 2019.

She was, however, later transferred to MTRH in Eldoret after one of the babies developed complications.
