Freetown — The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Tuesday announced the commencement of investigation into numerous complaints made to it with regards the blatant and willful misuse of drugs meant for the government's free health care policy.
The scheme was launched by President Ernest Bai Koroma on April 27, 2010 to improve on the health situation of under-fives, pregnant women and lactating mothers in the country.
The ACC said in order to ensure that the welfare, rights and privileges of the people of Sierra Leone were adequately safeguarded and fully respected, it has commenced a full scale investigation into the free health care programme in Freetown, Bo, Kono, Makeni and Kailahun.
In this regard a special task force has been assigned to carry out this investigation nationwide.
The commission called on all patriotic and well-meaning citizens to furnish the special task force with information regarding individuals and stakeholders whose actions are aimed at frustrating the success of the programme.
