Moses Kuria and distributors of electric mat that burned his feet testify before health committee

The national assembly health committee summoned distributors of the electric mat following a petition by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, who suffered third-degree burns after using it.

According to Kuria, proprietors of the mat had advised him to step on it for as long as he wished while it was connected to power. But instead of curing his condition, it burned his feet without knowing. He realised the next day that his promised cure caused him an even bigger problem.
