Former Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) CEO Lily Koros has been appointed an Administrative Secretary at the Health Ministry.
Koros will work under the Principal Secretary, Peter Tum, and will be in charge of Administration and Financial Accounting in other departments.
The former CEO was suspended from work in March this year after a brain surgery was performed on the wrong patient in the hospital.
The doctors realized that they had the wrong patient two hours into the surgery after they failed to find the purported clot.
Thomas Mutie was appointed the acting CEO after her departure. The ministry has now embarked on recruiting a substantive CEO after announcing the vacancy in the local dailies.
