Mudavadi Wants Commission to Probe Alleged Theft of COVID-19 Funds


Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi has called for a judicial inquest to probe the alleged theft of COVID-19 funds. 

Addressing the press Sunday morning, Mudavadi said Kenya may lose the support of the donor community if proper measures are not put in place to act against graft. 

According to the ANC party leader, waiting for auditor general and investigative agencies to deal with graft at Afya house will take too long since the institutions are already overwhelmed.

Mudavadi said he supports such a commission because commissioners enjoy immunity and an inquiry is conducted in public. 

He warned that failure to deal with Afya house scandals with immediacy will chase away donors who are supporting health intervention programs in the country benefiting millions.

So far the government has received over 220 billion shillings from international donors to mitigate the effects of covid19 on Kenyans.

On Saturday, ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna said ODM had restrained itself from responding to the theft allegations because of the desire to comment from an informed position.

Meanwhile, West Pokot Governor Prof. John Lonyang’apuo has called on leaders to tone down on political rhetoric and stop engaging in unending political campaigns. 

Governor Lonyangapuo challenged politicians to instead endeavor to offer solutions to the problems afflicting Kenyans. 

The Governor called for respect among elected leaders.

Prof. Lonyangapuo urged his County residents to continue ensuring that they adhere to the ministry of health coronavirus containment measures including washing hands frequently, wearing face masks, and keeping both physical and social distancing.
