Statement from The Nairobi Women’s Hospital

Nairobi, 10th February 2020: Following a meeting of its Board, the Nairobi Women’s Hospital
confirms that Dr. Felix Wanjala has agreed to step aside while both an internal review and an
independent inspection by the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist Council are carried out.

In the interim, the leadership of Nairobi Women’s Hospital will be undertaken by an Operating
Committee reporting to the Board. This committee is comprised of three Evercare
representatives.

It is a priority to allow the review process to take place in the best possible conditions, in order
to ensure clarity on the allegations that have been made. The Nairobi Women’s Hospital and the
management team are committed to cooperating fully and in the most open manner. We expect
this process will be concluded shortly, and we will update all stakeholders in due course.

The Board and the management team of the Nairobi Women’s Hospital would like to thank Dr.
Felix Wanjala for his continuous commitment and dedication to his role, the clinical staff and the
entire organisation over the last six years.
