Veteran radio presenter, Leonard Mambo Mbotela who is currently admitted in hospital, has appealed to Kenyans to help him offset a pending KSh1.1M hospital bill.
A letter signed by Stephen Mutavi, Nairobi South Hospital Human Resource Manager, indicates that since Mbotela’s admission on October 29, 2020, his medical bill has ballooned to a whopping KSh1,105,498.78.
The media personality was set for discharge this Friday, but due to the pending hospital bill, remains in hospital until it is cleared.
“He is due for discharge on Friday, November 13 as per the doctor’s recommendation. To continue with home care treatment. Any assistance given towards offsetting this bill will be highly appreciated,” reads the letter.
The letter further indicates that Mr Leonard is responding well to treatment so far but appeals to Kenyans for financial aid towards the medical fund.
Mambo Mbotela’s footprint continues even as he lives, having started off at Voice of Kenya back in 1964. And currently at the national broadcaster KBC where he still hosts his ‘Je, huu ni ungwana?’ show to date.
