Kit­tony calls for probe into the al­leged loss of Sh5 bil­lion at the Health min­istry

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

The al­leged cor­rup­tion at the Health min­istry should be in­ves­ti­gated and Kenyans given the re­port im­me­di­ately, Se­na­tor Zip­po­rah Kit­tony has said.

The Se­nate Com­mit­tee on Health vice chair­per­son said Kenyans should join hands and con­demn cor­rup­tion.

Kit­tony spoke at Upendo School in Ki­minini, Trans Nzoia county, on Satur­day. “I’m so dis­ap­pointed with the al­leged cor­rup­tion in the Min­istry of Health,” she said. “We must help the Pres­i­dent to fight cor­rup­tion us­ing all pos­si­ble means, be­cause Sh5 bil­lion is a lot of money to have dis­ap­peared”.

On Satur­day in Sibanga, Cheran­gany, DP Wil­liam Ruto de­fended the gov­ern­ment’s han­dling of the saga. He said the gov­ern­ment should not be ac­cused of graft be­fore the facts have been es­tab­lished. “The au­dit was done to en­sure no funds were mis­ap­pro­pri­ated,” he said.
