……….Talk about the COVID 19 heist millionaires……That, one cannot, for instance, understand how money meant to help mitigate the effects of the killer pandemic….COVID 19, can end up in a few individuals’ pockets…..This negates all the efforts made to contain the pandemic……

…….Talk about the COVID 19 heist millionaires…..As the country and Kenyan citizenry grapples and are more concerned about the real issues which are affecting them and this global pandemic which has swept the world…the corrupt cartels carted away funds which were meant to mitigate the COVID 19 pandemic and other killer diseases

At the height of this desperate and tough times which have been occasioned by this global pandemic…COVID 19…where most Kenyans are suffering silently as most of them have been laid off from their jobs, their businesses have collapsed, and, where they used to hustle everyday vanished in the thin air……and, blame it on COVID 19 pandemic.

And, most Kenyans are feeling the effects of this global pandemic which has ravaged everything in its’ wake, as they try to comprehend the next course of action. Hence, poverty and desperation have crept in. And, times are hard and tough for most people.

While most Kenyan citizenries took cover due to this global pandemic ……other corrupt cartels were smiling to the bank. They were pushing for corrupt deals with their eyes set on the funds which were meant to mitigate COVID 19.

The COVID 19 pandemic fund was reduced to a cash cow by a few corrupt cartels who have profiteered from the pandemic.

That, one cannot, for instance, understand how money meant to help mitigate the effects of the killer pandemic….COVID 19, can end up in a few individuals’ pockets. It is difficult to understand how donated medical equipment and test kits meant to save lives can end up being stolen and then sold to the public at exorbitant prices.

This negates all the efforts made to contain the pandemic.

The public outrage over the controversial tender awards for COVID 19 supplies should send strong signals to the Government and political leaders that the matter cannot be taken lightly. Citizens want action and cannot countenance executive procrastination and political brinkmanship.

Billions of Shillings have been lost. Donated equipment has vanished mysteriously. Yet little action has been taken. At the centre is the revelation of a massive corruption scandal at the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority {KEMSA}, where highly connected wheel-dealers were awarded lucrative tenders to supply equipment and other provisions for managing COVID 19 at highly inflated prices. Worse still, some of the supplies haven’t been delivered.

And, it is sickening that the country is treated to one scandal after another but no action is being taken. As South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa, recently stated, that those feeding off the COVID 19 cash are like hyenas circling over a wounded prey; they deserve harsh punishment
