Published

Embakassi East MP Babu Owino defended Jubilee Vice-Chair David Murathe over his alleged involvement in the Kemsa PPE Procurement scandal.

On Thursday Murathe appeared before a parliamentary committee after he vowed to clear his name over the Kemsa scam.

“The reason I am defending Murathe is that Murathe was never given a tender worth KSh4 billion and they never supplied, so there was no KSh4 billion involved… We fight those who stole money,” MP Babu Owino said. “We know you want to finish Murathe. This is not a laughing matter if you’re ever honored to sit where I am.”

“I am in Public investment committee charged with the responsibility of investigating KEMSA Scandal $ I can assure Kenyans that a report will come out soon and you will know who stole your money.KILIG Ltd linked to Murathe never supplied to KEMSA $ were never paid. That’s the truth,” he wrote on Twitter.

On his part, Murathe told the Parliamentary Committee that the company in the midst of the Kemsa scandal was associated with allies of Deputy President William Ruto.

Last week Murathe vowed to expose the real cartel behind the Kenya Medical Supplies Agency (Kemsa) PPE scandal.

In an interview with a local daily, Murathe said he will appear before a parliamentary committee next week on Thursday where he will shed light on his association with Kilig Ltd, a firm under investigation in the Sh7.8 billion Kemsa scam.

Kenya has suspended all inbound and transit passenger flights from United Arabs Emirates (UAE) for seven days.

Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) Director-General Gilbert Kibe on Tuesday morning said that the ban which took effect from Monday midnight was in response to a similar directive by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) on December 20 last year.

The ban comes barely a few days after UAE extended Kenya flight ban after it established that travellers from Nairobi were testing positive for Covid-19 after arrival in the Middle East nation, despite carrying negative test results.

Last month, the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) suspended all inbound and transit passenger flights to the Emirate of Dubai from any point in the Republic of Kenya.

On December 29, 2021, Emirates Airline said that it has, in turn, extended its flights from Kenya suspension to comply with the directive that was to end on December 24 until further notice.
