Panic gripped pregnant mothers and newborns at the condemned Mbagathi Maternity wing when a fire broke out at the newborn unit leading to a blackout.

This comes a week after the building was condemned by city engineers as having a structural deficit.

The Nairobi executive for Health Hitan Majevdia said all occupants were evacuated safely after the 2am incident.

“There was at a fire at the switchboard and they switched off the switch. They evacuated all the patients and now the building is empty we will do a complete check,” Majevda said.
