The lady seen on a trending CCTV footage as she was hit and run over by a matatu that jerked forward from a parking in Thika town is admitted at Kenyatta National Hospital and needs huge sums of money to undergo surgery.
Winnie Wanjiku had left a shop nearby and was walking on the pedestrian path when the unidentified driver stepped on accelerator. It is unclear if it was intentional move.
Wanjiku suffered a broken hand and a spinal injury. She needs Sh300, 000 according to Thika Town MP Wainaina wa Jungle who visited her in hospital. (Watch Video Below).
“After consultation with her very able doctor, I facilitated MRI that will assist medics to determine extent of her spine injury as her legs are currently numb. She is initially going to require around 300K for surgery and associated expenses. If you can, pls visit her and uplift her fighting spirit! She is a strong girl! #GetWellWinnie” Wa Jungle said.
Unconfirmed information indicates the vehicle was released by Thika Police and it, purportedly belongs to a Kiambu County MCA.
