The Western Kenya Human rights Watch has urged Ethics and Anti- Corruption Commission[EACC] to investigates Bungoma county Assembly Public Service Board over the lose of Sh37.2 million budgeted for medical scheme.
The organisation’s executive director Job Bwonya said the assembly has never remitted the money to cover 135 people.
He said Jubilee insurance won the tender but was only given 8million out of the whole a mount.
Documents in possession,show that after Jubilee won the tender the assembly public service board then used Maqo another insurance company who purportedly signed on its behalf and was paid 37.2 million.
”We want EACC to move with speedy and investigate the the public service board officers because the staff and MCA’s were being turned away whenever they seek medical services for lack of insurance payment from the county assembly.
Bwonya claimed that the broker went a head and produced fake Jubilee cards which are not digitized prompting health facilities to reject them.
In the document the county assembly is pleading with Jubilee insurance to offer services as they try to sought out the issue.
However the county clerk John Mosongo blamed Maqo insurance for failing to pay Jubilee.
”Its Jubilee themselves who told us to pay Maqo and we did so then it did not pay them,” said Mosongo.
