Also arrested together with Mwangi was the the Fund’s head of Finance Wilbert Kurgat.
Early October , the directorate of criminal investigations detectives and Ethics and Anti-Corruption officials agreed to arrest senior NHIF staffers that have been linked to a 400 Million Saga, our sources had confirmed. They actually arrested them for something like four hours before there was an intervention from DP Ruto. We are the only platform that has been lobbying for Mwangi’s arrest.
The scandal, involved loss of more than Sh400 million paid out for a medical scheme for civil servants, police and prison officers.
This is after the National Hospital Insurance Fund paid two bidders against an order by the Public
Procurement Administrative Review Board. Britam Life Assurance Company (K) Ltd and Pioneer Assurance Company Ltd were awarded the tender, despite quoting high prices.
The board had ruled that the award was irregular and ordered that NHIF contracts UAP Life Assurance Limited at its tender sum of Sh797,623,500.
The tender was for the provision of the Group Life Cover and last expense for civil servants, National Police Service and Kenya Prisons Service for the 2017-2018.
