Our man-eat-man so­ci­ety ex­posed by Sh5b Health scam

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

The new­est scan­dal in town, a case of lit­er­ally rob­bing the sick, shows we are a man-eat-man so­ci­ety. As re­ported in the dailies, it ap­pears to be a metic­u­lously hatched scheme un­der the purview of highly con­nected in­di­vid­u­als to ma­nip­u­late and di­vert pub­lic money in­tended for health mat­ters. Those men­tioned, if found cul­pa­ble, should be pros­e­cuted and jailed to serve as an ex­am­ple and de­ter­rence to the mas­ter­minds of cor­rup­tion. It is a won­der how former EACC boss Philip Kin­isu was vet­ted and ap­proved, given how he has been linked to cor­rupt deals.
