Better to build clinics than buy them for Sh1 billion
It is now emerging 99 mobile clinics bought by the ministry of Health are lying at the NYS yard at Miritini, Mombasa, six months after they were imported from China. One was taken to Nairobi for demonstration purposes. Some Sh800 million has been paid . The balance is Sh200 million. That means the 100 containers cost Sh1 billion. Whether or not they are fully equipped, this cost doesn’t add up. Instead, it would have been better to construct health clinics or equip Kenyatta National Hospital with modern equipment.
