A couple who hit the news headlines earlier this year after holding Sh100 wedding have been offered free maternity package for their first born child by a Nairobi hospital after learning that they were expecting their first child.
Komarock Modern Hospital, Utawala branch offered to provide unpaid antenatal and postnatal care to Wilson Wanjohi and his wife Ann Muhonja.
The facility announced that Selesio Nyamu, a gynecologist and obstetrician, will have a date with the couple on Wednesday for their first antenatal clinic visit.
“I got in touch with Ndungu Nyoro back then. Since our specialty is in healthcare, we discussed and left him to let us know when the couple is ready. I figured that since people had gifted them a dream wedding, we needed to ensure that they get the best healthcare as at that point I felt they may not afford it,” Harriet Nyamu the hospital’s Managing Director told Nairobi News.
In the package, the Komarock Modern Hospital will give the couple free gynecology consultation and antenatal clinic tests, free delivery services whether normal or caesarian section and postnatal clinic including immunization of the baby.
“I talked to Wilson on Monday and he told me they were yet to start the antenatal clinics so on Wednesday we will start off the journey with them to add to their happiness and ensure they deliver a healthy baby,” Nyamu added.
Wanjohi and Muhonja hit headlines after holding a Sh100 wedding, the only cost being the wedding rings at price of Sh50 each.
Following the publicity of their budget wedding, the couple received various gifts from Kenyans of goodwill, including a honeymoon package worth Sh1 million.
