The Kenyatta National Hospital has dismissed reports by blogger Robert Alai that 14 infants died as result of a power black out.
According to the controversial blogger, the 14 infants in incubators died on Wednesday 13, due to a power outage at the facility.
“’14 infants in incubator died at KNH yesterday because power went off and the hospital doesn’t have a back-up generator #WhyKenyaWhy?” tweeted Alai.

But KNH, through its twitter handle, faulted Alai’s claims saying the hospital did not experience any black out.
The hospital added that it has four standby generators.
“No baby has died at KNH as alleged by blogger Robert Alai, KNH has 4 standby generators and no power blackout was witnessed at KNH,” wrote KNH.
“All babies at Newborn Unit are safe. Please treat the information as an unfounded lie,” KNH responded yesterday.
