The Ministry of health has submitted a detailed report to the US government on how the ministry spent the funds given by the US government through USAid.
This comes just days after the US government withdrew billions of shillings from the health ministry over the ministry’s failure to meet unspecified conditions stated during the donation of the said fund.
The ministry submitted the report as Kenya seeks to reverse a decision to suspend the direct assistance from the World’s powerful nation.
Health Cabinet Secretary Cleopa Mailu denied that the withdrawal of aid was as a result of a damning report leaked to the media that unearthed a Sh5 billion scam at Afya House.
Mailu said that they hope that after the report the US government will reverse the decision to suspend the funding.
"In terms of fulfilling our mandate, on Monday we have a team which is coming from their side to sit with us to verify some of the steps we have taken. We hope after verification they will make a different pronouncement," said the CS in Mombasa after closing the Kenya Medical Training College retreat for the board, senior managers and principals.
"It is about having faith in systems where their money is channeled to. We have a responsibility to satisfy them. We can do what it takes to ensure that funds are used effectively without leakages," Mailu said.
