Standoff as Gideon Moi’s wife is blocked from Nairobi Hospital

Wrangles involving Gideon Moi's wife play out at Nairobi Hospital

The Nairobi Hospital

There was a standoff at Nairobi Hospital after the current board barred a faction supported by Senator Gideon Moi's wife, Zahra Moi.

Mrs Moi’s faction of Kenya Hospital Association (KHA), which owns the hospital, held a General Meeting (EGM) on Wednesday and elected new members of the board.

Their rivals claimed to have been granted an order restraining the elected board members from assuming office pending hearings.

We are happy to inform you that the court has issued an order restraining those purported to have been elected from assuming office pending an inter-party hearing,” in an advert in the dailies the board members said.

We wish to assure you that the validly elected Board of Management continues to run The Nairobi Hospital and is making the best efforts to implement strategic decisions to enhance the governance and operations of the hospital,” read part of the advert.

Leadership wrangles

Zahra Moi was approved, alongside eight other members, as a board member of Nairobi Hospital.

She was proposed to the board amidst a plan to ouster the then management over dissatisfaction about how they ran the facility.

In February, leadership rows at Nairobi Hospital took another turn last week when a petition was filed to remove the board directors.

Almost 200 members of the Kenya Hospital Association (KHA), which owns the hospital, drafted a petition to force the board to call an extraordinary AGM whose agenda was the removal of board chairman John Simba, his deputy Coutts Otolo and other board members.
