Two key donors have threatened to withdraw up to Sh400 billion earmarked for Kenya following the latest Covid-19 scandal linked to a government agency.
According to Citizen TV, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Global Fund have written to the government expressing concern over the alleged corruption.
For weeks now, the rot at Afya house has refused to leave the headlines, with every ugly twist and turn of the Covid-19 scandal and even donors have been taking note.
The Global Fund and USAID are threatening to withdraw funds that were to support HIV/Aids, tuberculosis and malaria programs for the next three years.
They expressed concern over KEMSA’s procurement woes as well as management and implementation of the grants given to the institution.
The Covid-19 scandal has also created an internal crisis at the supplies agency: it stands to lose up to Sh2 billion as it struggles to dispose of PPEs and other Covid-19 supplies.
