Renowned Kenyan blogger Dennis Itumbi, who doubles up as aclose ally of Deputy President William Ruto has challenged ODM leader Raila Odinga to act accordingly following completion of KEMSA scandal audit.
A couple of weeks ago when claims of the scandal emerged, Odinga and his ODM party noted that it was important to conduct an audit before making any allegations.
“The position of the party in the current allegations of corruption in COVID-19 related resources is that the government needs to conduct a thorough and urgent audit of all the funds that have been put at the disposal of various state agencies, departments and ministries to fight the pandemic with a view to establishing the facts on usage of such resources,” Odinga said.
His statement elicited mixed feeling with some leaders claiming that he was shielding members of his party mentioned in the scandal.
Over a month later, the office of Auditor General has completed the probe and tabled its report to the Senate.
According to the report presented by Auditor General Nancy Gathungu, the KEMSA scandal cost Kenyans a whopping 2.3 Billion shillings.
Reacting to the audit report, Itumbi challenged Odinga to act, now that it has been confirmed that lots of money was actually lost.
