Kenya: President Uhuru Kenyatta Puts Kemri, Ministry On Notice Over Corruption

President Uhuru Kenyatta has put Ministry of Health and Kenya Medical Research Institute (Kemri) officials on notice, telling them they will have to account for every shilling that comes from the National Treasury and donors.

The Head of State said his government will deal with all those involved in shoddy deals in the health sector.

Speaking on Thursday after touring Kemri Kilifi and launching the zero campaign against malaria, Mr Kenyatta said the agency's management will be held responsible for any unaccounted funds.
