Oscar Sudi Claims MPs In Health Committee Supplied Materials To KEMSA

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi wants President Uhuru Kenyatta to lead fight against graft by condemning his key allies, among them Jubilee Party national vice chairman David Murathe.

“Investigate these close people to you and you will understand why am saying this… Murathe is their ring-leader,” Sudi said on Friday.

Murathe is set to be grilled by the EACC for his Involvement in irregular tenders awarded by Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA).

Preliminary reports show that Murathe is a bank signatory of Kilig Limited, a company he disowned on live TV.

He told Citizen TV that he has worked with the company in the past but not on the Kemsa tender.

The company registered under William Gachoka was only registered in January and was handpicked to supply 450,000 PPEs at Sh9,000 each.

Kilig was awarded a Sh4 billion tender.

The Kapseret MP also stated that the ongoing probe by Parliamentary committees was not going to yield results.

According to the fiery lawmaker, some of the lawmakers sitting in the National Assembly Committee on Health supplied medical equipment to the agency.

“The people in the Health committee are involved and there will be no report from them, Kenyans should not to expect much from them,” he said, adding that they traded using different names and companies.

The committee is led by Murang’a woman representative Sabina Chege.

He added, “The ongoing investigations are only a mere game that will lead to no arrest or if so, few people will be arrested.”

Investigative agencies are also looking into Meru governor Kiraitu Murungi’s wife and son who through their firm, Caperina Enterprises Ltd, were awarded a Sh45 million tender for the supply of surgical masks.

They are expected to present themselves to the EACC on Monday.

Also being investigated is former Karachuonyo MP James Rege whose company loaned a firm by the name of Duke some money.

The company then supplied Kemsa with PPEs.
