A parliamentary committee sent away top Transport ministry officials, saying the team was unready to answer to its questions.


The National Assembly Health Committee chaired by Sabina Chege said the Transport ministry officials who presented themselves before them were not sufficiently prepared.


The Transport Ministry was represented by Transport Ministry CAS Chris Obure during the afternoon session.


Obure appeared before the committee to justify the ministry's role in the clearance of Jack Ma Foundation donations.


Obure told the committee that all the donations were cleared completely by the government clearing agency.


"The document before us from the ministry is not well prepared. We need to compare what was donated, what was received and what ended up in the warehouse," Chege said.


The Health committee examining the loss of Covid-19 funds necessitated written submissions.


Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny said the ministry is not ready to face them in regards to the questions they have.


"...when we have people come here with half baked information, it causes tension," he said.


"I will appeal that any institution invited here, if they are not prepared, they need to go back. I know you are experienced, you should not panic."
Kutuny said the public should be fed with enough information on the investigations.
