Narc-Kenya leader Martha Karua has demanded full accountability for Covid-19 funds in Kenya, even as she called for resources meant for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) to be diverted towards the fight against the virus.
Speaking to journalists Monday at her party’s headquarters in Nairobi, Ms Karua said the government owed it to the people of Kenya to show, in great detail, where the funds received from donors or as loans were used to fight the pandemic.
“We demand full disclosure, transparency and accountability for all Covid-19 funds, resources and equipment from all sources including loans, grants, donations and in-kind support both locally and internationally,” Ms Karua said.
The former Justice Minister said Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe must take responsibility for what is going on at his ministry.
“CS Kagwe needs to make up his mind whether he wants to be the boss of Afya (Health) House or Mafya (Cartel),” she said.
