MPs are now demanding that the house leadership provides them with a helicopter for evacuation in case of medical emergencies.

This follows the death of Matungu Mp Justus Murunga died on 14th November 2020.

While eulogizing Murunga, Kwanza MP Ferdinand Wanyonyi said that apart from being issued with hotline numbers to get helicopters incase of medical emergencies, Kenyan Mps also need special access to well equiped ambulances.

Murunga died on arrival at St Mary’s hospital Kakamega after leaving Matungu Sub-county hospital which apparently didn’t have an Oxygen tank.

We’re requesting and I have managed to talk to the Clerk of the National Assembly about this, that we should be given a hotline number to helicopter services just in case,” the Kwanza Mp suggested.

The late Murunga has been eulogized by the MPs as a hardworking man who had the interests of his constituents at heart.
