Mathare escapees

The place looks grim. I can recall seeing escapees in Nairobi while I was in my teens, back in the day. You could point them out, as they used to be dressed in a navy blue uniform, and the streets would clear as they came either walking, or running through the streets. The hospital does not look like it is secure, if it is that easy for the patients to escape, and it is clearly understaffed. The police officer in the video below is suggesting if you see the patients, to drive them back to the hospital.

Is he really serious, when other news sources state these men are violent.

Who in their right mind would take that risk?

This BBC article mentions the human rights abuses at Mathare hospital after a CNN documentary.
