Shawn Bolouki And The Rot At Aga Khan Hospital Exposes Patients To Grave Dangers



Aga Khan CEO Shawn Bolouki.

Aga Khan University Hospital remains the leading premium healthcare in the region a position it has retained over a lengthened period. Given it’s high standards, the hospital has remained the most preferred provider for the Kenyan elites. However, all that glitters is definitely not gold us our investigations have revealed.

The reputable hospital is sitting on a time bomb with a dejected staff who’re by design puting the lives of many patients who put their trust in the facility in grave danger. According to multiple sources we’ve been talking to during this investigation, the hospital which has long been run by the Ismaili Community is at it’s worse and most hostile state under the CEO Mr. Shawn Bolouki who is described as terrifically racist and mighty arrogant.

Bolouki has a stunning profile to hide the descriptions above, “Mr Shawn Bolouki has over twenty-five years of leadership experience in healthcare, and has ​during that time achieved major financial and operational successes in acute-care hospitals and medical care centres ranging in size from 120 to 1200 beds.” Reads the praises on him on the AGKUH website. “Mr Bolouki’s​ experience spans various hospital types, including academic, not-for-profit, faith-based, investor-owned and government hospitals, both individual and in comprehensive healthcare systems.” It continues.

Prior to joining Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi, Mr Bolouki was Chief Executive Officer for the Tulare Regional Medical Center (TRMC), Tulare, California, where he held executive leadership positions from the years 2008-2014. With a beaming CV, Bolouki has brought with him gloom to the Parklands based hospital.

According to sources and reports in our possession, the Hospital Management has gone on extreme by shedding off local staff and being replaced by foreigners. This is done in the guise of reshaping the  hospital. Just last year, about 400 staff members who had worked with the hospital some for decades were aced without notice not even a court interjection could stop this mass firing given the influence His Highness Aga Khan enjoys in the Goverment.

It emerged that posts created by the firing was filled by foreigners as that was the plan. Aga Khan is like ‘Islamabad’ one source describes the situation in the hospital. This is in reference to the high number of imported Pakistan nationals there. Majid Twahir, the Aga Khan Hospital medical doctor is roped in as one of the thorns that’s dragging the facility into its knees. He used to be a very good Doctor according to those who know him but once he got the post he turned his back on Kenyans and joined Bolouki in frustrating and blackmailing local doctors in their filthy racist cause.

A pattern has been drawn of inconsiderate firing of local doctors who’re immediately getting replaced by the foreign doctors. “Aga Khan is no longer what it used to be, things are at the worst, the doctors and staff here are just here not by heart but because they have bills to pay, Bolouki has made this place a living hell” one of my highly places sources at the hospital.

We’ve been informed of a pattern where by inexperienced and doubtful doctors are imported from Pakistan and Iran and quickly alley we nynrhe medical board which is another scandal altogether to replace local experienced doctors. We’re tild the management prefers the foreign naive doctors as they’re not as expensive and they don’t question the management, they prefer them that naive and enslaved.

Unmentioned exodus of experienced doctors has been undergoing at the hospital which is a cause for alarm, “Aga Khan is losing the best brains in the medical space because of hostile environment from the management” But the management under Bolouki arrogance doesn’t seem to give a damn. Aga Khan has been receiving several resignations but this hasn’t stopped Bolouki from running it like a school hostel.

“For them(Bolouki and his team) nothing matters to them than making money, now chances are when you’re admitted at the hospital you’ll be attended to by the residents(trainees) since most specialists are refusing to work with Aga Khan” another source confides in me.

Management of Aga Khan is the face of racism, nearly all departments and more so the strategic positions of financial flows are headed by the Wahindis, we’re told and collecting evidences that we will post in our subsequent expose how they’re also conspiring in defrauding the hospital through backdoor deals.

Positions that can be held by Kenyans are unnecessarily given foreigners for instance, the Head of Security, surely, you want to tell me there are no qualified Kenyans to effectively run that docket? But the favoritism doesn’t stop at that, Mr Khurram (Pakistani) now heads Budget and Planning department which was previously headed by Peter Maina. Prof Ojwang has been displaced at the Pathology department Prof Zul and Moloo while Pharmacy department now has 4 foreigners (Zyaid, Raza, Flakana and Zurndiji) replacing Joyce Nduati. Engineering department is now headed by Zaaker Ian replacing David Kimeu.

Prof Raja head of surgery is also frustrating manu surgeons  & he’s got his own puppet young & very good upcoming doctor but he is destroying his reputation. Finance is Aleem Merali, Radiology is headed by Dr Vinayak a Pakistani who we learn recently made a good radiologist leave the department.

Vinayak is also a business man and one of those under our probe for subsequent release on insider dealings. IT department is run by Tarun Aron, this chap doesn’t  even understand Swahili & his English is zero, how he got such a job leading giant geeks around is a result of the racism at the institution.

Believe it or not, Aga Khan is understaffed, as a business strategy, a big part of the work force was laid off and the few remaining are overworked, overwhelmed, doctors and staff at Aga Khan are working like stages in the cotton field with harshest conditions.

Staff are not allocated leave in some departments and some don’t even get to have lunch breaks because of many patients and minimal staff. The staff don’t find time to rest, many are working around the clock, I don’t need to go to the consequences of a fatigued doctor and other medical staff while we have Kenyatta National Hospital to tell us clearly on negligence. We also have negligence allegations on Aga Khan but currently under review, we will publish on verification.

Mass exodus of experienced doctors who’re now going to full private practice is real, this you can confirm from anyone in the healthcare scope. Mr Bolouki and his arrogance is running the hospital down, many of longtime clients and the general good perception of the hospital from the experienced doctors is what keeps them going but if this is replaced then patients will follow their doctors.

The harsh realities that are deeming the shine of Aga Khan might not reach His Highness the Aga Khan who only get to see the financial reports so the dejected staff who holds the future of the hospital go unchecked. Bolouki prefers to work with the naive and easy to manipulate staff who take his commands without a question mark.

The staff might deliver because of the nature of their work but the word that may reach His Highness the Aga Khan is his staff is completely demoralized and Bolouki isn’t stopping anytime soon so this means the patients are being handled by shaky, tired hands. No one is ready to face such hands. Medical staff have Cover limits, we’re tild you must get clearance from Majid Twahir, the medical doctor before given medication and staff limited to Sh50,000 limit for outpatients goes to show how enslaved the staff are.

Racism and overflowing of foreigners at Aga Khan must be checked before we let a lose system take away all the jobs for Kenyans. Aga Khan has the space to shut down Kenyan facilities and move the Islamabad if they only want to work with Pakistani and Iranian nationals. However, the Goverment and immigration department must without hesitation, jump to audit the Aga Khan foreign staff who’re being imported to take over positions that could otherwise be held by Kenyans.

If this is overlooked and the colored are favorited at the expense of locals then the Goverment would’ve failed in securing the interests of its own citizens and opening the space for manipulation, we already have information and pursuing for publication similar racism and mistreatment of local staff on Coptic,Guru Nanak.

Immigration must vet and withdraw work permits and consequently deport foreign nationals in Aga Khan imported as expatriates on positions that can be held and work done by Kenyans. This is a serious concern that must not pass the officials who also happen to be Aga Khan Hospital clients. The President must support this as he champions for the development and security of jobs for Kenyans.

Starting with Aga Khan and the rest of such, the authorities must help in securing the opportunities for Kenyans or there will be no country for our own professionals. The UK recently opened the doors for doctors removing visa limits. As we import doctors from Cuba and Pakistan to Aga Khan, I predict a mass exodus of Kenyan bred specialists to the UK which will leave a great void in the healthcare.

And with an hostile environment existing at Aga Khan, doctors forced by circumstances to stay at the hospital will without a second guess jump the ship. For how long will Bolouki and the management, overlook the welfare of the staff at Aga Khan by being dismissive and defensive while the facts shows good doctors are leaving and only the residents are left to handle cases some of which are out of their scope. Why let mismanagement leave patients in the hands of trainees? The mighty Aga Khan University Hospital is losing its glory but who will help the sickening situation? Do we have your ears yet? The expose continues…

‪DCI Recommends Charges Against Five Local Banks Over Involvement In The NYS II Heist As DPP Haji Forms Team To Review Files‬



DPP Noordin Haji.

Trouble looms for banks and officials who were involved in the illegal NYS II transactions a scandal that saw Sh8B embezzled. DPP Noordin has issued a statement on the progress following investigations on the marked banks by the DCI.

DCI investigations as directed by the DPP on the criminal culpability has found five banks liable; Standard Chartered, KCB, Equity,Co-Op bank and DTB all have a case to answer. The banks violated restrictions that govern banks in Kenya by facilitating flow of proceeds from crime and money laundering.

Investigations established that the Standard Chartered Bank received a total of Sh.1,628,902,000 between January 2016 and April 2018 out of which Sh.588,558,000 was suspiciously transacted by bank’ Officials without reporting to the Financial Reporting Center as opposed to the POCAMLA regulations.

KCB according to the investigations had received Sh800M of which Sh148,397,000 was suspiciously transacted by bank officials without sticking to the POCAMLA regulations.

Equity Bank received Sh.886,426,904 and that Sh264,200,000 and USD58,000 was transacted without adherence to the regulations.

Diamond Trust Bank which is currently under prove over involvement in helping Dusit terrorists launder their money for the attack, is in the frying pan as well. Investigations reveal that, the bank had received Sh.164M out of which Sh27,946,298 went without being captured by the regulatory board.

Co-Op Bank received Sh.250M and suspiciously transacted Sh.25M without reporting. DPP has since constituted a team of senior prosecutors who’ll review the files and give recommendations in the next two weeks.

DTB had been fined Sh56 million by CBK while Co-operative Bank will pay Sh20 million. The five banks handled a total of Sh3.5 billion from NYS with StanChart handling the largest transaction worth Sh1.6 billion followed by Equity Bank at Sh886 million, while KCBprocesses Sh639 million. The same banks involved in the NYS I are also the ones being chopped over NYS II. It seems the fines never worked so the punishment this time should even be heavier.

How Gulf African Bank Conspired To Defraud A Client His Sh500M Property In An Insider Mortgage Fraud Scheme



Gulf African Bank managing director, Abdallah Abdulkhalik.

In March 2009, SAX Limited had sought a loan from Gulf Bank to buy two aircrafts and related equipment. Mohamud Sheikh Hussein offered his property L.R No. Eastleigh 36/11/1 as the guarantor. By then, his property was worth Sh160M and has since gone up. For him it was just another of many bank engagements but unknown to him, it would end up in a decade long fight to regain full control of his suit property.

In April, 2009, Gulf Bank after reviewing the securities, agreed to advance a Murabaha Asset Finance Facility To SAC Ltd as the borrower Sh95M. This amount would be used in purchasing a used Aircraft Beechcraft Baron 95-E55,5Y-BPC at a cost of Sh11,200,000. A 5 tonne, Sideley HS478 Aircraft From Track Mark Ltd at Sh80M and Sh2.9M to purchase propellers.

The Sh160M property of Mohamud was to guarantee for Sh120M with SAC directors guaranteeing Sh94M but the registration was to remain jointly in the name of the bank and the company SAC. The terms for this MURABAHA facility was that profit and not interest would be charged at 16.5% of the facility.

That was a deal sealed and so Mohamud thought his work was finished. Things started making twists on 4th May barely weeks after SAC was advanced the principal amount of Sh95M. Gulf issued SAC with a second letter of offer varying the terms of the MURABAHA facility and this would translate into review of security terms for the mortgage. In a offer letter dated 4th May 2008, now the security property as the first ranking had a legal charge of  Sh95M, Mohamud switched to guarantee Sh95M.

In a letter of offer dated 4th November 2009 and seen by Kenya Insights, a second Murabaha stock finance was advanced to SAC the borrower for the sum of Sh15M. This amount was over and above the sums secured by the initial mortgage dated 9th September according to court papers.

Now here’s the point Fraud started playing, this second facility of Sh15M was given by the bank to SAC using Mohamud’s knowledge and consent as the guarantor and so the Murabaha facility wasn’t secured by the initial mortgage according to a court of appeal ruling on this case.

Gulf representatives liaised with SAC, reviewed the terms of mortgage while using the guarantor’s property, went ahead and issued another facility of Sh15M without his consent just to make the open breach clearer. The varied terms of repayment of the loan facility were of no effect and as a result, Mohamud was discharged from his obligation. Gulf unlawfully accommodated SAC the borrower and varied his terms of payment.

Having been fully discharged by the bank as a guarantor, there was no way in law the bank would reviver any amount on the second facility from Mohamud but from SAC the principal borrower. To affirm this in a demand letter dated 26th April 2010, in admission to this fact, wrote to SAC seeking the payment of the second facility. Mohamud wasn’t copied since he had been fully discharged by the bank as the guarantor on the principal amount.

In June 24th 2010 according to court documents, Gulf confirmed that SAC had fully settled the Murabaha loan facility which was done by the insurers on payment of the insurance of $370,000.

It didn’t end there, SAC(borrower) went ahead and sought a third facility(Tawarraq Working Capital Finance) Of Sh58,672,978 which was to be repayable in 24 months. Once again, Mohamud’s Eastleigh property without his knowledge and consent, was used to guarantee this third and illegal loan facility which wasn’t registered against his property according to court papers.

SAC the principal borrower defaulted in the payment of the third facility and Gulf sent him a demand letter dated 19th November 2010 seeking the settlement of arrears of Sh4,174,525.31. This letter wasn’t copied to Mohamud in tacit admission by the bank that Mohamud wasn’t liable as the guarantor.

Despite of all the accusations of playing dirty, the bank insisted that Mohamud was aware of the variations and approved them contradicting their body language. They never engaged him at any point after inking the initial mortgage facility.

In a sharp twist by a letter dated 26th January 2011, a firm Mohamed Muigai Advocates purported to issue a three months statutory notice on behalf of the bank seeking payment of Sh67,078,541.08. Here’s where the real games started playing.

SAC as the principal borrower informed Mohamed Muigai firm that the bank had waived the purported statutory notice by accepting payment and rescheduling proposal. By this, SAC admitted to liability as the principal borrower and the numerous proposals for settlement.

Despite all the breaches of all standard banking precepts, Gulf Bank purported to restructure the loan facility to make Mohamud who was the guarantor to make him the principal borrower. This, Mohamud says in court letters that it was illegal,l and vitiated by Fraud, duress and coercion so as to constitute an unconscionable bargain in law.

In play, the security documentation and letters were all drafted by the Gulf’s legal department and Mohamud wasn’t allowed the privilege of independent legal advice on the implications of signing the letter of offer dated 26th May 2011 in what he says the bank unlawfully coerced and duped him by purporting to restructure the loan facility and waive its exercise of statutory power of sale while in law, the bank didn’t have any statutory power of sale.

It doesn’t make sense that the bank purportedly made Mohamud the principal borrower yet there wasn’t consideration for the diminishing Musharaka sale and lease back Finance facility and not a single cent has been disbursed to Mohamud.

Worth noting that the bank had initially discharged Mohamud as the guarantor when it rescheduled the facilities in favore of SAC the principal borrower. For a fact, Gulf Bank has forwarded Mohamud a re-conveyance Of mortgage confirming that all the money secured under the mortgage of Sh95M the principal amount that is the only one he approved to had been fully paid.

Reconveyance of mortgage forwarded by the bank to Mohamud clearing him.

Amina Bashir, the Then Bank’ Company Secretary and Head of Legal Department is a key person of interest in this ploy. According to court documents seen by Kenya Insights, Amina drew agreements dated 26th May 2011 and purchase agreement dated 30th June 2011 in which she made Mohamud liable for payment of Sh68,455,295.08. In this reversal of roles, Amina purported to make Mohamud the principal borrower (SAC) now the guarantor to Mohamud when in fact no facility was advanced to him.

The Sh68.4M that now the bank was putting on Mohamud, Musharak Asset Purchase Agreement that Mohamud alleges he was duped and coarced into signing is described as a clear fraud on his side to enable the bank sale his property. Simple question that the bank need to answer is if Mohamud was a principal borrower as they purport then where’s the proof that he was paid? None as it never happened.

September 4th 2012, SAC the principal borrower in admission through a letter, confirmed it owed the bank the Sh68,455,295.08 that the bank purported to have been borrowed by Mohamud in their reversal roles theatrics. This debt according to court documents is fictitious and fraud that can’t be basis of any valid statutory notice.

In arguing their case to hold the statutory notice, Gulf Bank lies to the Court of Appeal by not disclosing that they had registered a re-conveyance of mortgage dated 8th August 2011 on 18th 2011 and there wasn’t mortgage in force.

The Chief Land Registrar confirmed that the last entry on the file was the re-conveyance of mortgage confirming that the property is fully and legally under Mohamud and held no debt, keep in mind the bank has cleared him of the loan.

With everything working against them and all factors exposing this clear fraud, Gulf Bank has served Mohamud with a notice of sale by public auction by Garam Investments on 17th Dec in respect of his Eastleigh property that he used to guarantee a loan and which the bank had cleared him of. The property would be auctioned on 19th February 2019 despite there being no mortgage registered against the property, non whatsoever

Following the sustained efforts to illegally acquire and sell his property, Mohamud has since published a Caveat Emptor Buyer Beware on local dailies warning the public against being duped into the purported public auctioning of his Eastleigh property.


At Kenya Insights, we’re just opening a case which we believe if it’s the norm, then there could be many  frustrated customers like Mohamud. We’re asking members of public who might have fallen prey to such mannerisms of coercion and duping to write to us with solid proof on either Gulf Bank or any financial institution, we will highlight. Our email is below this post.

As for Gulf Bank, we’ve picked this case and will be going into much deeper details in subsequent series, how a bank turned against a guarantor is a reason to worry many other potential or existing guarantors to their facilities. What does the bank know that Mohamud or the courts doesn’t know? Why is the bank withholding Mohamud’s land documents despite having cleared him of any debt? Why did Amina Bashir change the loans agreements along the way without consent of the guarantor? What’s the level of BODs involvement in this scheme? Series continues…
