Vihiga in Sh45m CT scan scandal – Weekly Citizen

Published

on


Residents of Vihiga county want Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti and the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission under Eliud Wabukala to investigate cartels in Vihiga county executive who looted the county over Sh45 million in the pretext of purchasing CT scan machine for the county referral hospital.
Our sources in Governor Wilbur Ottichilo’s office privy to the CT scan scandal disclosed that Weekly Citizen how corrupt individuals in the county government pocketed Sh45 million said to have been used to buy the CT scan.
It is said the CT scan machine which was launched by Ottichilo last month at county referral hospital in Mbale was a donation from Meditek Supplies Limited Company of Nairobi.
Our source disclosed that Vihiga county government last June signed a memorandum of understanding with Meditek Supplies Limited Company represented by its director Prittin Patel who donated the CT scan, a machine worth Sh45 million with aim of boosting crucial medical services that have been missing at the facility.
It is said when the Meditek Supplies Limited Company donated the CT scan machine the merchants of corruption at the county government of Vihiga seized the opportunity to steal from the county coffers.
The residents and part of the executive who are not happy with the dirty deals in the county government want detectives to track the records of procurement of the machine.
It is said there is no paper work to support the procurement of the machine.
Those against the deal say they smelled a rat when the county rushed the purchase of the CT scan machine and yet the government had launched the construction of the state of art CT scan laboratory at the referral hospital.

“We want detectives to come and investigate the purchase of the CT scan machine at Vihiga County Referral Hospital to a tune of Sh45 million. It was clear that the machine was a donation from Meditek Supplies Limited Company. We also wondered why the county rushed to purchase the CT scan machine and yet the national government was putting up more powerful and modern CT scan machine laboratory at the county referral hospital,” questioned our moles.
Our source decried a game of conman ship at the county executive office which is being perpetrated by a few individuals as the governor watch without taking action.
The rush in the launch of the construction of governor’s official residence which will cost Sh 124 million has also raised eyebrows.
People are wondering why the governor launched the construction of his official residence before EACC, which is investigating Sh23.9 million amount of money paid for the a piece of land and the cost of the architectural drawing which stands at Sh23 million.
They also wondered how the construction will go on and yet the county has not yet acquired the title deed for the piece land wondering how they got the approval of the physical planning of the house, Nema compliant certificate and the architectural planning of the site without a title deed

Why Uhuru has gone into hiding? – Weekly Citizen

Published

on


President Uhuru Kenyatta sneaked back into the country from Mauritius two days ago and retreated to a hide out to fine-tune a major government reorganisation that will see corrupt official sent packing, we can now report.

Sources revealed that the President opted to jet back into the country announced, even without the knowledge of his Deputy William Ruto.

The last time Kenyans heard of the President is four days ago when he addressed Mauritius investors accompanied by the country’s Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth.

Uhuru left for Mauritius on April 9 and upon arrival paid a courtesy call on the Acting President of Mauritius Paramasivum Pillay Vyapoory at State House, Le Reduit.

He was accompanied by Cabinet Secretaries Monica Juma (Foreign Affairs) and Prof George Magoha (Education) among other senior government officials.

On a state visit to Port Louis, President Uhuru Kenyatta convinced the Mauritian government to lift the ban on avocados and other produce from Kenya.

On Monday, queries were raised after the President skipped the fourth annual Legislative Summit in Kisumu.

He was expected to give a keynote address, award national honours to county assembly speakers and launch the global champion for youth agenda.

The Head of State was scheduled to open the event at 10am. Nobody represented or read his speech.

More than 4,000 delegates attended the summit that brought together senators, MCAs from the 47 county assemblies and partners at the Grand Royal Swiss Hotel from April 15 to 18.

Kisumu residents expected the President to address the progress of devolution, the handshake, development and his fight against corruption.

Three weeks ago, the President’s Twitter and Facebook accounts were suddenly deactivated shortly after he posted a tweet on corruption.

Speaking on the deactivation, Chief of Staff Office of The President, Nzioka Waitu said the President’s accounts had temporarily suspended and necessary remedial measures were being undertaken.

“On account of unauthorised access to the official social media handles of H.E the President of the Republic of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta. All official social media handles for the President have been temporarily suspended to allow for the necessary remedial measures to be undertaken,” the Chief of Staff said.
