Gatundu botched CS victim died of excessive bleeding – test

A private pathologist hired by the family of Rose Waithera Kanyingi, who died under mysterious circumstances after a botched Cesarean Section operation at Gatundu Level 4 hospital has confirmed that she died of excessive bleeding.

Dr Dorothy Njeru who conducted the second postmortem after the family expressed dissatisfaction with the first one done by Kiambu County government established that the bleeding had penetrated her small intestines prompting her death.

The autopsy was also witnessed by police officers, two county pathologists, who conducted the previous autopsy, family representatives as well as political leaders.

Speaking after the procedure at Kenyatta University Funeral Home, Kiambu county health CEO Andrew Toro said the results matched those of the previous one.

He, however, said that even though the results on the immediate cause of Waithera’s death matched, his office is still investigating the circumstances under which she bled to death.
