“Sad that this Tweet ended with ‘celebrate’. Never touched anything on root cause of the problem and how they can be mitigated. A doctor shouldn’t be put in a situation where his/her blood is the one to save the life of his patient. It is not a battlefield. Protect your doctors!!” wrote Odhiambo Issa
“Medicine is not a competition that the tweet ALONE should trigger anyone to do this. It is not demanded of any doctor to donate blood for their patients. And Habil Wesonga is not the first dr to donate blood for his patient. Perhaps not even in the first 100. Drs are Selfless,” responded Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union.
We Celebrate you Dr. Habil Wesonga for this selfless act.— KMPDU (@kmpdu) October 21, 2019
