    A boy with a fork jembe in his head undergoes surgery at Kenyatta Hospital

    Published on

    Two-year-old kid having surgery at Kenyatta National Hospital after a fork jembe got lodged in his skull.

    According to reports, the incident occurred on Tuesday as the youngster was playing outside with his friends and brothers. The event happened when the mother was absent.

    In a statement, the KNH communications team calmed concerns about the boy’s safety, explaining that the kid had been stabilized and was undergoing the delicate surgery.

    Our attention has been drawn to the story circulating online regarding a child admitted at KNH with a fork lodged in his skull. We wish to assure members of the public as follows:

    The patient had lost a lot of blood and as a result, the clotting process was not occurring as expected, thereby, delaying the surgical procedure as this would have been dangerous to the patient.

    The patient has since been stabilized and is currently undergoing a delicate operation in KNH theatres. We thank you for your concern and we assure you that the child is under the best care by our teams. Marketing & Communication, Kenyatta National Hospital

    Kenyatta National Hospital tweeted

    KNH has performed multiple procedures and utilized a multi-disciplinary team to improve the boy’s care.
