Kenyan investigators are to recommend the prosecution of at least 15 top government officials and businesspeople over the alleged misuse of millions of dollars meant for buying Covid-19 medical supplies, the BBC has learned.
The probe uncovered evidence of tenders being allegedly given to politically connected individuals and businesses.
The government ordered an investigation following a public outcry after the country received about two billion US dollars $2bn in aid and grants to fight Covid-19.
But health workers have complained about among others a shortage of public protective equipment, saying their lives are at risk after all sums of monies were received by government.
The state body responsible for purchases, the Kenya Medical Supply Authority has however denied that any money was stolen. END
