BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,18TH SEPT,2020-The Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji has appointed a team of prosecutors to review a file submitted by the anti-graft agency into the Sh7.8 billion Kenya Medical Supplies Agency scandal.

Haji received the file from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) on Friday and subsequently “appointed a team of senior experienced prosecutors to undertake an independent and comprehensive review” of the documents.

“The team will submit their findings to me, after which I will make a decision and inform the public of the progress within the next 14 days,” he added.

EACC has been conducting an inquiry into allegations of irregular procurement and fraudulent payments in relation to the purchase and supply of Covid-19 emergency commodities that led to the irregular expenditure of Sh7.8 billion at Kemsa.

President Uhuru Kenyatta had asked government agencies to expedite investigations into the alleged theft of funds at Kemsa.
