A driver and an attendant of an ambulance belonging to the Kenya Red Cross’ E-Plus are under probe for ferrying drunk teenagers to help them beat curfew rules on Thika Road.
The teenagers blew the cover for the crew after they took a video while in the ambulance and shared it online. Several Kenyans shared the video on social media, complaining of misuse of resources amid the fight against coronavirus pandemic.
E-Plus managing director Susan Ng’ong’a said the ambulance was on April 17 deployed for purposes other than provision of pre-hospital services.
“The individuals carried in the ambulance were not in need of any pre-hospital services. This was a violation of our standards and protocols for service and the laws of Kenya,” she said.
She added they had taken disciplinary actions against the staff implicated in the incident and asked police to investigate them.
