KEMSA Board Chairman Kembi Gitura and who had appeared before the Parliamentary Committee for grilling on the alleged loss of Covid-19 donations has asserted that no COVID-19 donations including those of Chinese Billionaire Jack Ma have been stolen rubbishing past remarks from some leaders.
According to Gitura, he has explained that what they did was to collect the donations after arriving at the airport whereby they kept them in a warehouse awaiting directives from the Ministry of Health on how they should distribute them.
"What we did was to collect the donations from the airport & put them in our warehouse then await distribution instructions from MoH. Jack Ma has been the most visible donor, but the truth is that we received a lot of donations…" Gitura has explained.
The KEMSA Biard Chair has asserted that they have been in a distress to see that news have been going viral purporting that they received donations yet holding them at KEMSA while others alleging that they stole the donation explaining that Kenyans should term the news as "Untrue".
"This issue has caused us a lot of distress…when we read that we received donations & we’re still holding them at KEMSA & doing nothing with them & that they were stolen at KEMSA. I want to put the record straight; this is not true!" he added.
Gitura has further added that he is ready to open all KEMSA warehouses for the parliamentary committee to verify that any of Jack Ma donation was not
"I am committed to opening up all KEMSA warehouses for this committee to come and inspect if any Jack Ma donation is there… this is an invitation I even make to the media," Gitura posed.
