Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Thursday has reinstated all doctors and three nurses who were suspended during former Governor Evans Kidero’s regime.

According to Governor Sonko, the three nurses were sent home in 2015 for allegedly inciting their colleagues to go on strike.

“Comprehensive investigations have found that the three, Eunice Thaara Ngari, Magdalene Wambui Ngari and George Maroa Gibore, were not involved in any wrongdoing,” reads part of a statement issued by the Director of Communication at the Governor’s office, Elkana Jacob.

Meanwhile, the governor has formed a 13-member task force to investigate the management and financial crisis at Pumwani Maternity Hospital.

The task force is expected to complete its work and compile a report within 90 days.

Members of the task force led by Acting Nairobi County Executive for Health Charles Kerich comprises health practitioners, stakeholders in the health sector and former administrators.

They include; Dr. John Nyamu, Gynecologist Private Sector, Dr. Simon Mueke, Ministry of Health, Prof Joseph Karanja, University of Nairobi Medical School, Dr. Anne Kihara, Kenya Obstetrics and Gynecological Society (KOGS), Dr. Carol Odula, Kenya Medical Association (KMA) and Mugure Kiambati Principal, Pumwani Maternity Hospital Nursing School.

Others are Former Nairobi Mayor Joe Aketch, former IG and current chairman Kenyatta National Hospital Board David Kimaiyo, Dr. Evan Seqeuira (Aga Khan University Hospital), Nathan Kahara (Former Nairobi Mayor), Dickson Mbugua (Matatu Welfare Association), Dr. Thomas Mutie (CEO Kenyatta hospital) and Bashir Admali, a Paediatrician at Aga Khan Hospital.

Pumwani hospital has been on the spot since Monday when Governor Sonko made an impromptu visit at the facility and discovered 12 infant bodies in paper bags.

He suspended top county health officials over the saga and installed temporary replacements in acting capacity.
