Au­di­tor Muchere ap­pears be­fore Se­nate Health Com­mit­tee over ‘Sh5bn scan­dal’

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Parliament -

The in­ter­nal au­di­tor who un­cov­ered the al­leged Sh5 bil­lion scan­dal at the Ministry of Health is set to ap­pear be­fore the Se­nate Health Com­mit­tee to­day. Bernard Muchere, a cer­ti­fied fraud ex­am­iner, will be ques­tioned a week after the grilling of Health top bosses CS Cleopa Mailu and PS Nicholas Muraguri, who said no money was lost. They turned the heat on Muchere, al­leg­ing he pos­si­bly leaked the draft au­dit. This comes amid ques­tions on why Muraguri wanted the au­di­tor pre­ma­turely trans­ferred. There have been con­cerns the com­mit­tee is soft on top ministry of­fi­cials. Some civil ser­vants have sug­gested the National Assem­bly PAC in­sti­tute a par­al­lel probe.
