Traffic campaigns held at and around the airport, 1,027 traffic citations were issued and 14 vehicles were impounded. Traffic officers also dealt with seven accidents. Meanwhile, Kuwait Municipality has decided to rename Al-Mutlaa Housing Project as Al-Mutlaa Residential City based on a request from the Public Authority for Housing Welfare and preliminary technical approval, reports Al-Anba daily.

In a letter included in the agenda of the ad-hoc committee meeting, Director General of Kuwait Municipality Engineer Ahmad Al-Manfouhi directed the members to play the role assigned to them by the Municipal Council until a decision is taken on its tenure, which lapsed last Wednesday.

The committee, as at the time of the meeting, had been working for 60 days within the purview of the constitution, the daily stated. It is worthy of note the Municipal Council had issued decision number MB/LJ 4/172/13/2014 dated 30/6/2014 to approve renaming of South and North Mutlaa Housing Project after the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad but another request was submitted to name it Al-Mutlaa Residential City. And, Director of the Farwaniya Hospital Dr. Mahdi Al-Fadhli has denied rumors that a prisoner who was brought from the Central Prison died due to medical error, reports Al-Rai daily.

The director said the prisoner was in coma when he arrived at the hospital and died after the amputation of his leg. Al-Fadhli quoting the head of the surgery department Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Mutairi, said the deceased inmate was brought to the Farwaniya Hospital from the prison.

He was in a coma due to blood poisoning because of gangrene in the lower left side of the foot until the middle of the leg. He added the leg was amputated after a written pledge signed by his elder brother. Al-Fadhli added, the patient was also suffering from Huntington’s chorea, an inherent disorder that results in the death of brain cells.
