The Ministry of Health has today reported that Kenyans will have no option but to pay kshs 7.6 billion, which was used in the alleged illegal KEMSA procurement deal, last year.
According to the news by the standard, Solicitor General Kennedy Ogeto yesterday declared the Sh7.6 billion Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (Kemsa) procurement illegal but said the taxpayers will still have to pay for it.
Appearing before a health parliamentary committee a few hours ago, Ogeto has revealed that the kshs 7.6 billion was masqueraded by corrupt individuals in the Government, who violated the procurement tender laws as spelled out in the Constitution.
Also, Members of Parliament have proposed to come up with a multi-agency team that will investigate how to recover the Millions of money lost to the suppliers who quoted unreasonable prices by going for the exact prices of items at that time.
