Endangered species? Cuban doctors flee from Lamu without any notice after 2 of their colleagues were abducted by Al-Shabaab in Mandera

Monday April 15, 2019-Lamu County has been dealt a severe blow to its health system after two unidentified Cuban doctors fled from the county.

The two left their designated work stations in Lamu during the weekend following the recent abduction of their countrymen and colleagues in Mandera County by suspected Al-Shabaab terrorists.

Speaking to the media, Lamu Health Executive, Anne Gathoni, confirmed that the two doctors left unexpectedly, adding that they were most likely facing trauma over the Mandera kidnapping.

"It's true, the two Cuban doctors traveled out of Lamu abruptly over the weekend,” Ms Gathoni divulged.

Meanwhile, the Government successfully evacuated all the Cuban health workers stationed in Wajir and Garissa Counties.

The doctors were evacuated over the weekend for fear of abduction as the search for kidnapped colleagues intensified.

“We received orders from our seniors on Friday evening to arrange for their transport back to Nairobi and on Saturday morning they left,” stated Garissa police boss, Aaron Morasae.
