Drama at Nairobi Hospital in attempt to evict CEO

Lawyers were part of the struggle

Entrance to Nairobi Hospital

The struggle ensued as hospital lawyers attempted to issue the CEO with the dismissal letter.

Odundo took over as CEO less than a year ago, years after former Health CS Cleopa Mailu left the hospital.

There has been disquiet at the hospital over deterioriating standards that was blamed on the new CEO.

Controversial Appointments

The CEO was accused of making controversial hires to key hospital departments. One such appointment was that of Timothy Otieno Odundo, allegedly the CEO's nephew, as the ICT Director.

The Hospital's new Finance Director Anthony Mburu is also said to be Odundo's brother-in-law.

Insiders at the hospital also alleged that the scrapping off of overtime dues for nurses and support stuff had demotivated the hospital's personnel leading to the compromised quality of services.
