The cabinet Secretary in charge of the Ministry of Health CS Mutahi Kagwe is among the top cabinet members who opted not to resign to join politics.

However, it seems that even as he decided not to resign, the Auditor General Madam Nancy Gathungu was finalising a report touching on the Ministry of Health.

The details of the report are likely to affect the top Cabinet Secretary who has seen his ministry get marred with top scandals touching on Multi-Billion spending.

According to the latest report, his ministry has been put on the spot over massive spending irregularities during the Covid-19 period as the Auditor General cast doubt on expenditures of Sh8.4 billion.

Of these, Auditor General Nancy Gathungu said Sh3.4 billion was over-commitment for Johnson & Johnson vaccines, Sh1.6 billion was spent on refugee assistance and Sh2.3 billion spending was above the approved budget.

It is expected that both the cabinet secretary and his principal secretary will be invited to parliament to answer to the queries that have been raised by the auditor general.

Once the Auditor General finalises reports, they are normally presented to parliament which has the mandate to oversight other government institutions in the country.
