Residents lament frequent power outages at Emuhaya hospital

Residents of Emuhaya Village in Luanda Constituency, Vihiga County have raised concern over the frequency of power outages at the Emuhaya Sub County Referral Hospital.

Speaking at the Emuhaya business center, the residents lamented that the power outages said inconvenience them greatly when they take patients to the hospital.

“When there is a power outage, they have to use lanterns. It is distressing that the management has not been able to buy just one generator for the hospital since independence,” one of the residents said.

They are now calling for a change in the hospital’s management, adding that leaders from the county and national governments should find a way to solve the power problem so that patients can get good services.

“Instead of them going around hunting for votes, these political aspirants should be getting us a lasting solution,” noted one resident.

Doctor Joel Edalia, who is the head of diagnosis and rehabilitative health services in Vihiga County told Citizen Digital that they have made the problem known to the relevant authorities, adding that the problem will soon be solved.

“We have met with engineers from Kenya Power and we are currently looking for ways to upgrade the system to a three-phase power supply,” Edalia said.
