The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Parliament -

The Na­tional Assem­bly Com­mit­tee on Health will to­mor­row host em­bat­tled Health Cabi­net Sec­re­tary Cleophas Mailu and PS Nicholas Muraguri. The MPs will meet the two re­gard­ing the bud­get im­ple­men­ta­tion by the min­istry for the 2015-16 and first quar­ter of 2016-17. This comes days af­ter the two is­sued a ro­bust de­fence against ac­cu­sa­tions that the min­istry had lost some Sh3.1 bil­lion in fraud­u­lent pro­cure­ment. The al­le­ga­tions arose from a leaked in­terim re­port by the min­istry’s in­ter­nal au­di­tor, but the min­istry has dis­missed the claims. Yes­ter­day, the Health Com­mit­tee re­ceived a brief­ing from the Par­lia­men­tary Bud­get Of­fice re­gard­ing the bud­get im­ple­men­ta­tion by the min­istry. The min­istry has given a brief on how the money queried by the au­di­tor was used, in­clud­ing how a com­pany owned by Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta’s sis­ter got its ten­der.
