Kenyatta National hospital has been in the news lately for all the wrong reasons .
First was a botched-up surgery and doctors’ strike that has paralysed operations at the institution.
A few consultants have been hired to fill the gap left by their striking counterparts who supervise students at the facility.
Medical students who work in the hospital have since joined their striking teachers.
