Kenya: Auditor General to Submit Preliminary KEMSA Report to Senate Probe Team

30 September 2020

Nairobi — Auditor General Nancy Gathungu was Wednesday morning slated to hand over a preliminary report on the utilization of COVID-19 funds at Kenya Medical Supplies Agency (KEMSA).

The Senate Joint Committee on Health and the Covid-19 Situation in Kenya said the preliminary report should focus only on the procurement processes at KEMSA.

Gathungu had requested the committee to give her up to October 15 but members rejected her postulation, saying they had narrowed down the scope of work.

On July 23, the Standing Committee on Health requested the Auditor General to conduct a special audit on KEMSA accounts for the period between 2017 and 2020 and on the utilization of COVID-19 funds by the county governments.

Appearing before the joint committee on September 15, Gathungu said the special audit was still at the initial stage of data collection, analysis and corroboration of information from various institutions.

The audit team will thereafter visit counties for verification of utilization of funds from the first week of October.
