President William Ruto has issued a stern warning against corruption and wastage in his government as far as the provision of services to citizens is concerned.


President Ruto, speaking during the 5th Cabinet meeting at State House, Nairobi, on Tuesday, said graft and wastage of resources will not be tolerated in his administration.

He emphasised integrity and vigilance within government ministries and departments, asking the Cabinet to honour their responsibility to the Constitution and the people.


The Cabinet meeting hence agreed to ensure the prudent utilisation of public resources.

This comes after day after the President sacked Dr. Josephine Mburu as the Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Health’s State Department for Public Health and Professional Standards.

Dr. Mburu was sent packing over a bungled procurement process handled by the Ministry of Heath that left the country on the verge of losing a Ksh.3.7 billion worth of anti-Malaria nets from the Global Fund.

In a statement issued on Monday, Head of Public Service Felix Koskei also announced that President Ruto had further revoked the appointments of the Chairperson and Members of the Board of Directors of the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) which was responsible for the flawed procurement process.
