Dr Khainga, a plastic surgeon, had been stripped of his admitting rights following the death of Wanza who was recovering froma breast surgery.

Justice Byram Ongaya ruled that the hospital had not followed the correct process in executing the action on the doctor.

"An order is hereby issued stopping Nairobi Hospoital from implementing the decision to suspend Prof. Khainga's admitting rights at their facility pending the hearing and determination of the dispute," the judge noted.

Wanza's Family out to Get Him

The surgeon had argued that the stern action against him was in bad faith from Wanza's relatives who, coincidentally, are part of the Hospital's board.

"The deceased's father-in-law, one John Simba, is the chairman of the hospital's board of directors while her brother-in-law is the head of marketing and customer relations," he argued.

Wanza died  on June 6 after Dr Khainga and two of his colleagues performed a surgery to correct her asymetrical breasts.

The three surgeons, however, accused Dr Rueben Okioma who attended to Wanza at Nairobi Hospital for killing the patient after the doctor fixed an intravenous access in her neck causing the bleeding that killed her.
