In a statement issued on Saturday, Dr. Wanjala said he has written to the Chairman of the hospital’s board informing him of the decision to step aside.
“I have taken time to think about this, although I don’t believe the allegations are true I would want our patients to regain confidence in us as a healthcare provider. I have this afternoon written to the Chairman of the board informing him of my decision to step aside from my position as CEO effective immediately to allow the investigation team to do their work,” said Dr. Wanjala.
The allegations emerged after screenshots of conversations claimed to be from a WhatsApp group of Nairobi Women’s Hospital staffers were exposed online.
