Thursday November 3, 2016 - A civil society organization is now pushing for the resignation of top officials in the Ministry of Health named in the sh 3.1 billion scandal.
National Civil Society Congress led by its President Morris Odhiambo, vowed to ensure those looting public resources were kicked out of office and punished.
Speaking during a demonstration outside Afya House yesterday, Odhiambo decried rampant corruption in the Jubilee Government, saying it was undermining Kenya’s sovereignty and leading to deaths.
“Crooks in the ministry are stealing from babies and pregnant women, HIV and Aids patients, accident victims and cancer patients,” said Odhiambo.
“Corruption is undermining Kenya’s sovereignty and standing in the global community. It is also contributing to death and despair among citizens,” he added.
The protesters were able to submit a petition to the Ministry officials because of the presence of heavily armed police officers.
