Baringo Senator Gideon Moi’s wife, Zahra Moi, has scored her second board appointment two weeks after landing a plum government job.
In a special general meeting called by members of the Kenya Hospital Association (KHA) on Wednesday, Zahra was approved, alongside eight other members, as a board member ofÂ The Nairobi Hospital.
The new board was unanimously voted into office in a bidÂ to oust the seven members that served previously.
â€śThe vote was unanimous 96 to 100,â€ť statedÂ Valentine Ataka, the lawyer representing KHA.
Other members that will serve on the board besides Zahra includeÂ Tabitha Oduori, Maxwell Otieno, Wilfred Irungu, Susan Carr-Hartley, Jeremy Gunze,Â Steven Ochiel, Chris Bichage and Richard Omwela.
The new board will elect a chair during its first sitting.
Towards the end of April, Zahra was proposed to the board amidst a plan to ouster the then managementÂ over dissatisfaction about how they ran the facility.
On May 4,Â Tourism CSÂ Najib BalalaÂ re-appointed Zahra as a member of the Board of Tourism Research Institute.
Through a Gazette notice dated May 3, 2019, it was announced that Zahra was expected to serve in her new capacity for a period of three years beginning June.
“In exerciseÂ of the powers conferred by section 54 (1) (h) of the Tourism Act, 2011, the Cabinet Secretary for Tourism and Wildlife re-appoints –Â Zahra Bahlewa MoiÂ to be a member of the Board of Tourism Research Institute, for a period of three years, with effect from the 1st June, 2019,” read the notice in part at the time.
