CORD leader @RailaOdinga scheduled to address press conference 14h00 at Capitol Hill Square. Expected to unmask architects of MoH scandal
Masterminds of the Sh5.5 billion heist at the Health ministry just perfected the tricks employed at the National Youth Service to continue looting public resources.
Except for the change of names of key players and the victims of the misappropriation, the architects skimmed hundreds of millions of shillings through similar tricks, only on a grander scale. An internal audit at the ministry shows that officials also overstated bills, causing the loss of Sh1.6 billion in public funds.
The auditor found that the Ministry of Health submitted to the National Treasury a list of pending bills amounting to Sh2.4 billion. However, when the auditors went in, they only found a total bill of Sh856 million from payment vouchers and other documents.
