The National Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) announces 60-day ultimatum for the Auditor General Nancy Gathungu to carry out a forensic audit at the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) where Billions of shillings are alleged to have been stolen.


 

The move over allegations of misappropriation of money meant to fight the COVID-19 pandemic has ignited protests in several towns across the country.


 

PAC now wants regular updates and answers from the Auditor General on the utilization of the billions allocated for the virus fight.



“A maximum of 60 days from the day of this communication to undertake this forensic audit…in one month we expect a preliminary report…,” said PAC Chair and Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi.


 

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi said Parliament will fully participate guaranteeing the funds allocated to fight the spread of the pandemic are fully accounted for.


 

Muturi further challenged investigative agencies to look into the graft allegations and ensure Kenyans know the truth about reports of runaway corruption in KEMSA, an agency under the Ministry of Health.
