The government of Kenya under the leadership of Uhuru Kenyatta has been given tough conditions to full by the International Monetary Fund, IMF. According to report shared through the Standard News, Kenya has until tomorrow midnight to reveal the names of owners from the controversial Shs 7.8 billion KEMSA Scandals.
Uhuru Kenyatta on August 31st he ordered Kenya's Ministry to publish details of all purchases made during the Corona Virus pandemic period following the allegations government officials stole millions of dollars of vital medical supplies. However, this has not been done till now.
This ultimatum was given by the International Monetary Fund, that wants the government to lay bare the owners of companies that were contracted by the Kenya Medical and Supplies Authorities as part of the agreement they struck in the ongoing Shs 256 billion programme.
The Washington based institution noted that while KEMSA published reports with information on awarded contracts and beneficial ownership of companies, the same had not been put in the public procurement information portal to be accessed by the members of the public.
However, the publication of these names might unmask some of the shadowy wheeler dealers that have lined their pockets at the expense of a citizenry that has been hit hard by the crippling effects of the Covid 19 pandemic.
The government is said to have completed audits of all Covid 19 related expenditures for the financial year 2019-2020, which involved audits of all spending by the State corporation and forensic audits of Covid 19 funds utilised by the National government, KEMSA and counties.
