Former Health Principal Secretary Josephine Mburu has distanced herself from the Sh3.7 billion anti-mosquito net scandal at the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KeMSA), saying she got into office after the procurement process had begun.
Mburu was appearing before the Senate Health Committee, chaired by Uasin Gishu Senator Jackson Mandago, to respond to allegations of irregularities in procuring long-lasting insecticidal nets at KeMSA.While appearing before the Committee on Tuesday, June 6, the axed PS said she was wrongly fired and called for a fair hearing.
Mburu has additionally explained that KeMSA tasks are directed by Clinical benefits, not General Wellbeing which she was accountable for.
“I can’t examine the leading body of KEMSA or its tasks since it was not in my service. KeMSA isn’t under me, it was under PS Tum. I have zero command over what occurred there. KeMSA is under clinical benefits which was going by previous PS Tum who has now been moved to another service,” she said.
At the point when previous PS Susan Mochache left the workplace, she was supplanted by the two (Mburu and Tum) after her agenda was parted into two state divisions specifically: the State Branch of Clinical benefits headed by Peter Tum and the State Branch of Wellbeing Principles and Expert Administration headed by Josephine Mburu.
Because of the outrage, President William Ruto terminated Dr Josephine Mburu as the Central Secretary in the Service of Wellbeing’s State Division for General Wellbeing and Expert Principles over the mosquito nets embarrassment.
