On Thursday, July 9th Kitui County Governor, H.E Charity Ngilu met Ms. Pendo Masonga, a 20 year old Tanzanian National who has what appears to be a malignant growth on her mouth.
On interacting with her Governor Ngilu learnt that she has been living with this condition for a long time and had came to Kenya with the hope of meeting well-wishers to help her undergo a maxillofacial operation to correct the growth.
She offered to pay for her expenses to undergo the Maxillofacila operation which will be done in Kitui after four other successful similar surgeries at the Kitui Referral hospital.
The successful surgeries were all residents of Kitui.
“The patient has been picked, and is now in an ambulance on her way to Kitui Referral hospital.” stated Governor Ngilu.
