Wamuchomba said that the move was the only way to make sure government officials improve health services in the country.

“Such a requirement  is the only way that will make leaders become serious in addressing the plight people who are currently suffering due to pathetic and deplorable conditions of many public hospitals,” Wamuchomba said.

The Kiambu Woman Rep said it was sad to see government leaders travelling abroad for specialized health care as the poor are left to succumb of the same diseases.

When Juja MP Francis Waititu returned to the country last year after a successful brain surgery in India, he revealed that he had met nine MPs and four senators receiving cancer care in India.

“Those people you have been helping in fundraising to go for further treatment in India cannot find anywhere to lay down their heads . . . they are sleeping in trenches because they cannot afford renting the expensive houses in India,” the Juja MP said.

“I personally spent Sh1.8 million on housing alone for the period I was there. How many Kenyans can afford that?” the legislator said.
