Allegations of corruption continues to emerge at KEMSA

Kiraitu Murungi’s Wife, Son Named Among Top Beneficiaries of Stolen KEMSA Billions

The covid-19 millionaires’ saga has refused to go away as more details emerge on the list of beneficiaries of the multi-billion tenders to supply PPEs.

And even as more fingers point at Health CS Mutahi Kagwe as the real orchestrator of the grand heist, it has now emerged that the son to a powerful politician from Mt. Kenya is listed among the beneficiaries of the  corruption scandal.

Taking to his twitter account on Monday morning, controversial TV host Tony Gachoka has revealed documents showing ownership of one of companies paid millions of shillings by KEMSA for the supply of PPEs.

Caperina Enterprises Ltd was registered in 2016, according to the records from registrar of companies.

The outspoken TV host says that he will continue to expose the powerful list of politicians and wheeler dealers whose companies supplied KEMSA with highly inflated PPE equipment.

The new revelations come at a time when the under fire Mutahi Kagwe is facing calls for his impeachment.

Yesterday a group of religious leaders aligned to the Presbyterian Church of East Africa asked the CS to step down to allowed for complete investigations into scandal to take place.

LSK Chairman Nelson Havi has been at the forefront urging people to ask their MPs to remove CS Kagwe for his involvement in the saga.

While being grilled by a senate committee last week, suspended KEMSA CEO Jonah Manjari said that he was working under the instructions from above, and that the Health CS and his PS sent him instructions via phone calls and SMSes.
