Wednesday June 17, 2020 – Ministry of Health is currently on the spotlight after redeploying two senior officers who were on the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) radar over the misappropriation of billions of shillings from the Ministry.

Last week, Health Cabinet Secretary, Mutahi Kagwe, who is aware that National Quality Control Laboratory (NQCL) Director, Dr. Hezekiah Chepkwony, and his deputy, Dr. Pius Wanjala, were being investigated by EACC, ordered their redeployment.

Dr. Chepkwony was moved to the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital and Dr. Wanjala to the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC).

Dr. Wanjala is accused of being a full-time employee at the law firm of Masika and Koross Advocates based in Hazina Towers Nairobi.

Dr. Wanjala is consequently guilty of conflict of interest and abuse of office.

On June 5th, CS Kagwe lamented about how cartels at the Ministry were frustrating cleanup efforts.
