In Summary
  • Chief Officer of Health Stephen Sewe, who had on August 9 signed the posting order, cancelled it through another letter.
  • JOOTRH CEO, Dr Peter Okoth, had been moved to the Kisumu County Referral Hospital.
  • Senior accountant at JOOTRH Olivia Adhiambo had been redeployed to Muhoroni.

Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o’s administration has suspended a reshuffle order that affected at least 24 officers in public hospitals in the county.

The county government had made a major shakeup in public hospitals which saw some senior administrators demoted, thus raising apprehension among the staff.

The reshuffle came in the wake of the swearing-in of a new Health CEC, Prof Judith Attyang', last month.

She swore to overhaul the entire system to enhance results.

CANCELLED

On Tuesday, Chief Officer of Health and Sanitation Stephen Sewe, who had on August 9 signed the posting order that effected the changes, cancelled it through another letter.

"…All the concerned officers are hereby directed to continue executing their respective roles and responsibilities in the stations as usual," Mr Sewe said.

In the now revoked reshuffle, at least 24 officers were affected with the first casualty being the acting CEO of the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital (JOOTRH) Dr Peter Okoth, who had been moved to the Kisumu County Referral Hospital (KCRH).
