The NHIF CEO Jeff Mwangi might have compromised the EACC and Public Procurement Regulatory Authority to scuttle a Ksh. 400 Million scandal investigations, a source privy to the matter has tipped us.
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.
Britam quoted Sh836,946,330 while Pioneer put its price at Sh852,284,830.
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.
This is the scandal EACC and Public Procurement Regulatory Authority had promised to probe, but nothing has been yet done, with our sources insisting that money has changed hands.
EACC, despite running PR stunts, has still failed to convince Kenyans that their war on corruption is genuine. For instance, in the Ruaraka land scam, the ODPP returned their weakly formulated files because of many loopholes. Many guys at EACC have made a lot of money through corruption dealings making the commission part of the unholy alliance.
Unless the Ksh. 400 Million scandal is well investigated, people arrested, arraigned in court and charged, the war on corruption remains a big joke. Those at NHIF Keep dancing on poor Kenyans graves, as impunity thrives.
President Uhuru Kenyatta, the state house joker, has listed Universal Healthcare as a key enabler of his ‘Big Four’ legacy plan, which includes a cover for the over 400,000 civil servants.
But how will that happen as people like Jeff Mwangi loot everything?
