Healthy Dose: Global Fund Demands Kenya Pay Back Misused FundsBy PSIHealthyLives
April 30, 2012 The Global Fund wants Kenyan government and individuals to pay back about $3 million in misued funds as determined by a recent audit. The Daily Nation reports: A damning audit report of the money it provided to the country up to 2010 is categorical that various government departments and individuals involved in the misuse or direct theft of some $3,253,161 (Sh270 million) should return the cash. Unlike with similar reports in the past, a draft of the current one was first given to the Kenyan Government to ascertain whether it was a true reflection of corruption within the fund’s programmes in the country. (snip) A section in the audit report explaining how far Kenya had gone in implementing the recommendations says some individuals, especially in the Division of Malaria Control, had already returned some of the money they had stolen. In one instance, the government says it has recovered the bulk of about Sh4.5 million withdrawn from a Global Fund grant using fake documents, with the staff member in question having been asked to pay back some Sh2.5 million.
