Almost a year since the alleged misappropriation of about Ksh7.8 billion, no arrests or conviction have been made over the allegations.
"We (MPs) are currently on recess. The report will, therefore, be tabled after recess. The members have already adopted it," stated Nassir. The legislators are set to resune sittings on September 6.
During an interview with Spice FM on Thursday (today) morning, Nassir decried how corruption has continued derailing nation's development.
In August 2020, KEMSA fell on the spot over an alleged theft and misuse of Ksh7.8 billion, meant to purchase Covid-19 equipment. The misappropropriation raised by the National Treasury forced President Kenyatta to order investigations.
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe, several firms and individuals have since been grilled over the matter. Last month, MPs slammed CS Kagwe for taking too long to act despite the report by the National Treasury over KEMSA's expenditure.
The legislators wondered whether CS Kagwe had not been receiving updates on what was happening at KEMSA, despite Health Ministry having a representative there.
