Revelations of Sh15 billion scam at the Ministry of Health do not come as a surprise for a project dogged with serious integrity questions from procurement, quality and value for money.

Cofek urges Director of Public Prosecutions to order immediate investigations into the outrageous variation by a whopping 200 per cent.

Allowable variations backed with good reasons ought not to exceed 15 per cent. That this particular procurement shot to 200 per cent is daylight robbery and an equivalent to treason.

Its taking public ripoffs to an unprecedented levels which must be aggressively fought to have all those behind the fake variations.

County governments should only pay for the initial fees.

The same probe should be extended to the Sh5 billion scandal in which then Principal Secretary Dr Nicholas Muraguri was adversely mentioned.
