A Murang’a woman who refused to seek maternity care in a hospital on grounds that her religion does not allow treatment from doctors has died.

Stella Njeri Kinyanjui, 30, who was pregnant, declined to be checked by doctors saying her church does not allow her to be treated in any hospital. According to a report by Inooro TV, her village mates in Gatanga who were concerned that the pregnant woman was not seeking maternity care had reported the matter to a medical officer in the area.

She was forcefully taken to the hospital but even after getting to the hospital, Stella, with the aid of her accompanying husband stood their ground not to be treated, it’s after going home that she died.
