Praise for au­di­tor Muchere who ex­posed Health rot

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

Kenyans, re­gard­less of their po­lit­i­cal af­fil­i­a­tions, agree that the last four years have been char­ac­terised by grand cor­rup­tion cases with so much lost, as never be­fore. The ogre-type of greed and the mad ac­cu­mu­la­tion of ill-got­ten wealth among a sec­tion of those who have been en­trusted with cus­tody of pub­lic re­sources have brought untold suf­fer­ing and mis­ery to many Kenyans, who have missed ba­sic and es­sen­tial ser­vices such as health­care. Al­though the graft mad­ness has reigned supreme, and the cor­rup­tion car­tels shame­lessly looted pub­lic cof­fers with im­punity, there is a group of dis­tin­guished Kenyans who have stood against the loot­ing. As we cel­e­brate Jamhuri Day, these true he­roes and hero­ines def­i­nitely de­serve spe­cial recog­ni­tion and hon­our. One of them should be­nau­di­tor Bernard Muchere of the min­istry of Health who raised quetries over Sh5.2 bil­lion.
