72 Million Shillings Meant For ICU Equipment Disappears from County; EACC Conducting Investigation

Incidents where public money has been lost to corrupt government officials have been on the rise in the country with the government, through the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission doing its best to bring the culprits to book.

The fight against corruption has been spearheaded by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission whose sleuths have been able to nail a lot of government officers and bring them to justice for their crimes.

This evening, according to the available reliable reports that we have with us from Siaya County, 72 Million shillings is alleged to have been embezzled which was meant to buy Intensive Care Unit equipment.

It is alleged that the Siaya Referral Hospital had built an Intensive Care Unit wing but did not buy the equipment although money for the same, amounting to 72 Million Shillings, had been disbursed.

It is alleged that the funds were embezzled when the Siaya Referral Hospital opened an ICU Department but there was no equipment purchased.

Instead, the County Government is said to have installed ventilators which had not been bought but had earlier on been donated by the Kijabe Hospital.

Let us know your thoughts and opinions on this latest development in the comments section below this article.
