Drama as Saitoti kin drags his wife to mental hospital
The sister-in-law of the late Internal Security minister George Saitoti successfully foiled police attempts to have her admitted to hospital as a mental case.
Ms Grace Kina Leposo, the wife of Prof Saitoti’s younger brother — Ronald Musengi — was forcibly picked up from a hotel in Embu by six police officers from Mbeere and driven with her two daughters to a hospital in Nairobi, 130km away.
Police tried to admit her to Avenue Hospital, in Parklands, claiming she was suffering from mental illness.
But Ms Kina refused to get out of her vehicle, a green Range Rover, locking the doors and shouting through the window: “I am not coming out.”
