MAILU PROMISES TO TAKE ACTION ON ROGUE OFFICIALS
Health CS Cleopa Mailu has promised to take action on rogue officials who may have siphoned the money. A leaked internal audit indicates that the mega scandal involved manipulation of the IFMIS, diversion of funds and double payment of goods. Mailu said the ministry is treating it “very seriously”. He said the office of the Auditor General is scrutinising the ministry’s 2015-16 accounts. The scandal is another blow to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s efforts to tame run-away corruption.
