Health Com­mit­tee to meet to de­cide fate of chair­per­son Nya­mai, deputy Pukose

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

The Na­tional As­sem­bly Health com­mit­tee will meet to­day to de­cide the fate of the chair­per­son and vice chair­man.

There have been claims the two are frus­trat­ing the probe into the al­leged loss of Sh5 bil­lion at the Health min­istry. Chair­per­son Rachel Nya­mai (Ki­tui South) and vice chair­man Robert Pukose (En­debess) are also ac­cused of bow­ing to out­side pres­sure to “cover up” the scan­dal.

Other com­mit­tee mem­bers pre­sented a pe­ti­tion sup­ported by 20 out of 29 mem­bers. Nya­mae and Pukose sur­vived the sack­ing last Thurs­day af­ter fail­ing to show up for the meet­ing.

Matun­gulu MP Stephen Mule yes­ter­day said, “The 20 mem­bers who signed the pe­ti­tion still stand by their de­ci­sion.” Dif­fer­ences emerged when the com­mit­tee in­spected the NYS mo­bile clin­ics in Mir­i­tini, Mom­basa, last week.
