Don’t let politi­cians blind you on the Mafya House Scam

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

It’s very un­for­tu­nate that even when Sh5.3 bil­lion is re­port­edly mis­ap­pro­pri­ated in the min­istry of Health, we still have politi­cians who de­fend such a thing. The money was bud­geted for key health pro­grammes such as HIV Aids con­trol, med­i­cal sup­plies and ma­ter­nal health. This comes when we are grap­pling with the can­cer cri­sis. It is known that when these politi­cians fall sick, they are air­lifted to top­notch hos­pi­tals in the West, that is when top hos­pi­tals in the coun­try can’t treat their ill­ness. Kenyans must not ac­cept to be blinded on this mat­ter.
