Pumwani hospital superintendent Catherine Mutinda has been suspended following the death of twelve babies in unclear circumstances.
The claim is that the babies died after machines in the sterile services department failed.
Mutinda was suspended on Monday alongside Dr James Kamau – the obstetrician gynecologist, and the hospital’s administrator Zadock Angahya.
The entire board of the facility was also dissolved hours after Nairobi governor Mike Sonko unearthed an attempt to cover up the deaths.
The governor said he was briefed that an unknown person had switched off a generator serving the maternity wing resulting to the fatalities.
The matter was reported to the Pangani police station for further investigations.
