hello today I would like you to know about mercy mwangangi Kenyan young doctor who has been trending every second on Google this doctor is the one briefing us on television about config 19 cases each day since the coronavirus pandemic started.
if everything is almost failing due to coronavirus pandemic in our country but on other side I see things being very good for people like mercy mwangangi, because she’s now trending and she’s making it in her life.
The night before Mercy Mukui Mwangangi was appointed chief administrative secretary in the Health ministry, she was weighing her options on three lucrative health economist job offers.
The following morning, as she was rushing to attend a meeting, Dr Mwangangi, ran the three offers over in her mind.
Which one would i pick she asked herself?
But immediately her world changed after President hon Uhuru Kenyatta named the chief administrative secretary for health. and everything went on a way she never planned before.
She was Born in Machakos in 1986, then went to Pangani Girls, Nairobi, for her high school education, and then went on to graduate from the University of Nairobi in 2009 with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery.
Mwangangi’s journey to the top has been anything but easy. She first volunteered to work unpaid for 18 months in the Health ministry while devolution was taking shape, before she was posted to the ministry’s monitoring and evaluation department.
Here, the young doctor got a good view of the entire health sector by interacting with all spheres in the ministry.
Soon, she was part of the team evaluating performance contracts and appraisals for the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF).
After five months of working on reports and presenting them to senior managers, at 29, Mwangangi was promoted to head the health financing division, which at the time was struggling to craft operational strategies.
