Health Cabinet Secretary Cleopa Mailu is tomorrow morning expected to table the final audit report of the ministry to the senate health committee.
The final report will either discredit or confirm an earlier draft report that indicated the ministry lost Sh5 billion through corruption on various deals.
Mailu is expected to table the report before the committee chaired by Migori senator Wilfred Machage and also specify action to be taken on those who will be found culpable of swindling taxpayers’ money.
Last week, Mailu said he will only act on individuals mentioned in the report after getting final audit report.
Machage told the CS to report to the senate without failure and present the final report that the committee will subsequently table before the senate.
“I urge you CS not be absent on Tuesday, present to us the final report and tell us whether Kenyans lost money or not. I have a lot of questions from senators to answer and therefore the report will be very important to us,” Machage said.
Mailu and his Principal Secretary Nicholas Muraguri have so far denied that the ministry lost Sh5 billion. The CS has said that only Sh3.1 billion was subjected to the audit and the final details will be known tomorrow.
Both the CS and the PS have accused the auditor Bernard Muchere of leaking an internal report to the media without giving the ministry a chance to respond to the questions raised.
A team of auditors from the treasury were expected to complete the audit on Friday last week and present the final document to the Cabinet Secretary.
“The auditors are working on the report and they said they will present it to me on Friday, will look at it and present it to you on Tuesday (tomorrow),” Mailu said last week.
