Gengetone and Mugithi artist, Peter Miracle Baby has appealed for financial help to raise Ksh 1 million to offset his medical bill.

Speaking in a recent interview, his wife Carol Katrue revealed that Miracle Baby has been in the hospital for quite sometime due to stomach complications.

Katrue revealed that the family only managed to raise Kshs200,000. She also admitted that they don’t have NHIF or any other health cover insurance.

“The hospital wants us to raise even half of the money before we continue(with treatment) because we don’t know when he will be discharged. The bill currently stands at Kshs1, 020,000."

Miracle baby's intestine obstruction started in 2018. According to Katrue, medication has been working but in 2023 it got worse and he had to be rushed to the hospital.

"In 2023, when the stomach issue relapsed, we took him to hospital and did an ultra sound. The appendix was not visible. CT Scan confirmed the same. That is when we discovered the hospital he visited 2018 removed his appendix and they didn’t tell us and they didn’t correctly place his stomach organs. The intestines got blocked every now and then, we would take him to hospital for medication," she told Karangu Muraya.

She added that he recently underwent an emergency surgery and he is currently using an oxygen machine due to an infection.

"On Wednesday, it was noticed that his stomach was swollen, he was neither eating nor relieving himself. He was rushed to an urgent surgery. It was discovered that his intestines had burst and poured faeces all over the stomach. His other intestines were burnt as well. He was cleaned but his wound was removing pus. His infection was very high. He has been on oxygen, his pulse rate has been very high."

Karangu Wa Muraya is mobilizing Kenyans including artistes and politicians to raise the amount on his Facebook page.
