Nairobi Hospital chief executive Gordon Odundo has been sent on a three month leave to pave way for an audit over tendering processes at the facility. The hospital's board of management confirmed the decision in a statement on Saturday saying the leave, which became effective on Friday, includes his annual leave. "The board has taken the necessary measures to ensure that the functions of the hospital continue uninterrupted," the board said. A stand off reportedly ensured the hospital on Friday after Odundo allegedly locked himself inside his office way into the night to avoid being served with the leave letter. Sources at the facility say the board's decision to send Odundo away is meant to pave way for an ongoing audit into multimillion insurance and construction tenders.
