Nairobi Hospital Extends Suspension Of Its CEO
The board of Nairobi Hospital has made the decision to extend the suspension of embattled CEO Gordon Odundo as the battle for the control of one of Kenya's most prestigious medical facility hits its third month.
A letter seen by Daily Updates Africa and sent by board chairman John Simba to the CEO stated that the board had decided to extend his suspension to April 13.
Your leave expires on March 13 and the board at its meeting on February 25 approved your compulsory leave be extended to April 13.
 We contacted Gordon Odundo for a comment but he had not responded at the time of going to press. At the center of the boardroom boards are multi million projects and the billions generated annually by the hospital in revenue.
The most recent multi-billion project by the hospital is Anderson Centre, a 12-storey building including a convention centre with a 400-seat auditorium and a massive kitchen block.
Just last month, a group of senior doctors and members of the Kenya Hospital Association that comprises 1,800 members, who own the hospital purged the board of some of its members during a meeting.
The CEO is said to have been standing in the way a certain board member who wanted his company to supply the hospital with insurance services and in the end he earned his suspension. He is the biggest casualty so far.
