  • WATCH: Hospital officials suspended after infants' corpses found in boxes

Nairobi County Governor Mike Sonko on Monday carried out a raid at Pumwani Maternity Hospital after a tip-off from members of the public exposing lapses in the facility's management.

Top management of a hospital in Nairobi, Kenya has reportedly been suspended after corpses of at least 12 infants were found stuffed in boxes.

Mr Sonko said he went to the Pumwani Maternity Hospital on Monday after he received reports of negligence.

The bodies were wrapped together in polythene bags and stuffed in three boxes with a box carrying one body, another carton had six and while five bodies occupied the third hidden box.

"I want to categorically state that human life must be respected no matter the case".

The governor also dissolved the hospital's board. "Stern action will be taken against anyone found to be sabotaging the good services offered to our mothers and sisters who come to deliver in this facility", he posted.

While one of the institution's officer insisted that only one infant had died, the governor demanded for a thorough search leading to the gruesome discovery.

Sonko, in a statement, said the matter was reported to the Pangani police station for further investigations. "You can't lose 12 babies in a day", he said.

According to BBC, the hospital was one of the top public centres in Kenya and had been dogged by controversy for many years, including "allegations about the mistreatment of pregnant women".

Sonko suspended superintendent Catherine Mutinda, Dr James Kamau - the obstetrician gynaecologist who was supposed to be on duty - and the administrator Zadock Angahya.
