Sonko made the announcement through his social media pages.He stated that the move follows a deal with two hospitals.
“I’m happy to announce a new partnership deal with Agha Khan University Hospital & Nairobi West Hospital to transform Pumwani Maternity Hospital. Open link for more details of the upcoming new Sonko Pumwani Women’s Hospital & College of Nursing & Midwifery,” Sonko said on Friday evening.
The Governor recently visited the hospital and reportedly discovered that Pumwani lacks proper equipment and enough staff to cater to pregnant women.

A section of Senators and members of the Nairobi County Assembly later threatened to impeach him over the saga that cast aspersions.
A day later, Sonko posted pictures of coolers being delivered to the facility, equipment that were allegedly a personal donation
