Kenyans on twitter have angrily reacted to the appointment of former Police Inspector General David Kimaiyo. They have termed the former head of police as incompetent.
Under the hashtag #KimaiyowillkillKNH Kenyans have said that he will not be of any help the hospital and will instead will leave it in a worse state that he found it.
Kenyans have argued that Kimaiyo does not have the level of experience required to chair the KNH board. He is a former IG who was unable to handle the constant terror attacks on Kenyan soil
The hospital has been the center of scandals the biggest being the brain surgery that was conducted on a wrong patient at the hospital.
Blogger Robert Alai has said that if former IG Kimaiyo is appointed as the chairman of the board such cases would be an everyday thing.
Here are some of the tweets:
You appoint Kimaiyo as KNH chair, expect to hear of medical mistakes at KNH everyday. #KimaiyoWillKillKNH

For once I stand with @RobertAlai on the #KimaiyoWillKillKNH KNH needs a health manager one who understands how a health institution as complex as KNH is run. The problem we have in Kenya is that will look at politically correct individuals who will do the bidding 4 politicians

Must KNH be headed by people from Rift Valley only? Not long ago so many mistakes under the leadership of another Rift Valley CEO. #KimaiyoWillKillKNH

Kenyans have said that the position required a strong leader who could not easily be swayed by illegal cartels
