The other of­fi­cials in­clude chief of­fi­cer Ti­mothy Malingi and se­nior ac­coun­tant Ja­cob Konde. The Fi­nance ex­ec­u­tive was also sum­moned but failed to ap­pear be­fore the com­mit­tee, as he was un­well. It emerged dur­ing the hear­ing that Sh30 mil­lion was ap­proved by the Health chief of­fi­cer though he de­nied it, say­ing the ap­proval was au­to­matic. The other Sh15 mil­lion al­legedly dis­ap­peared from the county Trea­sury. Speaker and com­mit­tee chair­man Jimmi Kahindi said they in­tend to meet the Fi­nance CEC on Novem­ber 10.
