Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero seems to have reacted, albeit too late, to his Nairobi counterpart Senator Mike Sonko’s “rescue team” efforts. As many of you know, Nairobi Senator ‘Sonko’ recently launched a rescue team to offer various services to Nairobi County residents.
The team, which has so far facilitated over 21 weddings across the country, provides an entourage comprising of S class Mercedes Benz, Land Cruiser, Limousine and Hammer to grace wedding couples’ happiest moment.
Among the services offered by the group include ambulance, hearse, breakdown, wedding transport, water, security and emergency responses services.
From the happiest moments to the most difficult times of life, Sonko Rescue Team has been a shoulder to over 89 bereaved families; by providing transport in and out of Nairobi County for the remains of their departed loved ones to their place of rest.
Through the Rescue Team Centre, residents of Nairobi have also benefited greatly from free ambulance services to ferry their loved ones in critical conditions to hospitals within the capital. These services are managed by qualified paramedics constituting four clinical officers and four nurses who offer pre hospital care to patients.
In a City where fire break outs are almost a common phenomenon, the Rescue aid group has tried to manage them. It has a fire management team with fire engines including 23 smaller ones which can penetrate through narrow paths in order to extinguish infernos.
Sonko Rescue team also periodically sets up Medical camps and mobile clinics within Nairobi and its environs. They provide free screening services that include cervical, breast and prostate cancer.
In addition the team which has so far put up 13 medical camps in Nairobi also offers free Pharmaceutical services, immunization programs for both children and adults and even food stuff to less fortunate people.
As if this is not enough, the group also acquired four Land Rover Discoveries to carry out Mashinani Security Patrols within Nairobi county; working closely with the police.
This team has created employment to hundreds of youth who are actively involved in the daily operations of the group including cleaning of the environment, car wash services and salons among others.
This initiative is hailed by many beneficiaries as a way to deter the youth from crime.
Political Analyst, Dr. Adams Aloo terms Senator Mike Sonko as a philanthropist and explains that there is no law that stops anyone from offering social services. And it doesn’t look like Sonko will stop anytime soon.
