In Summary
  • The county has been grappling with the challenge of inadequate drugs among other issues.
  • Some contractors stopped working on the roads that they were building due to lack of funds.
  • Mr Nyoro said the executive has held talks with the Kemsa for continuous supply of drugs and other non-medical supplies.

Kiambu Deputy Governor James Nyoro has sworn to seal all loopholes created by dishonest county officials to steal revenue at cess collection points.

The move follows increased and prolonged theft of county revenue by dishonest workers, which had stalled key development projects and affected provision of quality healthcare across Kiambu.

As a consequence of this, the county has been grappling with the challenge of inadequate drugs, dilapidated health infrastructure in need of urgent repairs, lack of essential amenities such as incinerators, laundry machines, drying and ironing facilities and inadequate medical personnel.

CONTRACTORS SUFFER

In addition, some contractors stopped working on the roads that they were building due to lack of funds.

A few months ago, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) had warned that the decision by the county to deploy casual workers as revenue collectors was bound to lead to loss of revenue.

After the warning, the commission conducted its investigations that led to the arrest of Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu, his wife and eight others over graft.
