The Ministry of Health in Kenya has sounded an alarm on the increase of malaria and tuberculosis (TB) cases in Kajiado District.

Area public health officer, Paul Tikolo, said malaria prevalence had shot up to 27 per cent from 23 per cent in 2004. Infection rate of TB, he said, stood at 3 per cent from 2 per cent last year.

"We have been forced to come up with special TB manyattas at the district hospital so that the patients can complete their dosage," he said.

He said many people in the area failed to complete medication.
