She is not known to many but on that day her hard hitting facts got a lot of Kenyans online and offline talking. Dr. Gor Goody stepped onto the stage and demolished it. From her beauty, her eloquence and how firm she stood for the rights and well-being of doctors not only in Kirinyaga County but in central region. That was enough to see her trend across all social media channels for the better part of the day. And in a video by NTV, Kenya doing rounds on social media, she appeared to have ripped apart Lawyer Nyamodi who was only looking to test her mettle. The Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU), Central Region branch secretary appeared before the special senate committee during Governor Waiguru’s impeachment hearing. While testifying, Dr. Gor laid out statements that painted a grim picture of the health sector in Kirinyaga county. View pictures in App save up to 80% data. From the moment she took the stand, her credibility as a witness was questioned by the eleven senators selected to oversee the impeachment motion of the Kirinyaga Governor.However, she stood her ground, “I;m here to speak on the dilapidated healthcare system in Kirinyaga and on behalf of the four hundred and fifty seven workers who were fired,” she asserted. She then went on to detail several issues regarding her relationship with Wiaguru, “ I have never had a chance to sit down with the CEO of Kirinyaga county to discuss health matters. When you employ a specialist and you do not take their advice you are doing a disservice to yourself, that person and the community in general, “ she revealed. She went on to claim that the doctor-patient ratio in Kirinyaga county stood at 1:30,000, which is almost double the figure quoted by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Chief of staff Nzioka Waita, when he was defending a deal that brought one hundred Cuban doctors to work in Kenya. “To be a surgeon in Kirinyaga, you have to be a snake wrangler first,” she stated during the hearing. A feisty one like her has quite a bit of history. Dr. Gor holds a degree in Medicine and Surgery and was the one who led threats to withdraw doctors from the Kerugoya Referral Hospital in Kirinyaga county due to facility’s deplorable state in May 2019.

She led a five kilometer match to the Governo’r office but was repulsed by police officers who were forced to lock up Waiguru’s office, to prevent the agitated group from forcing its way into the offices. “We have written many letters to the county government but we are yet to get a reply on our call for dialogue, that is why we came to the county to be addressed by Waiguru but no one has heeded our call,” she stated at the time.
