President Uhuru Kenyatta has asked government agencies to advance investigations into the alleged theft of funds at KEMSA.


"Given the public interest the relevant agencies should expedite investigations and conclude the same within 21 days," he said.


"All persons found to be culpable from the ongoing investigations on COVID funds should be brought to book notwithstanding their social status or political affiliations."

"They should record lessons learnt. The group should formulate strategies to identify loopholes in our health facilities and recommend ways to improve," he said.


"They should expand ongoing work and establish the Kenya COVID vaccine consortium so that research centres can partner with those internationally and sharpen their focus on testing and developing vaccines locally," he said.


"We must acknowledge that this news is not a licence to backslide from our path of responsibility," he said.
 
"Responsibility is not a burden but a civic duty. It is something you seek as a task. It is a habit that you pay to your fellow citizens," he said.
