NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 29 – The Nairobi County Government is now seeking to purchase drugs from a different supplier and ditch the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority, citing frustrations.

This follows public outcry due to lack of drugs in Nairobi County health facilities as KEMSA stopped restocking the facilities due to a huge debt the county owes them amounting to Sh300 million.

Speaking at the launch of a human milk bank at the Pumwani Maternity Hospital, Sonko directed the County’s Health Department to work on getting a new supplier within a week so as to put to an end the suffering Nairobi residents are going through.

Sonko has further asked the Director of Criminal Investigations to probe pending bills owed to KEMSA by the previous regime, alleging that the debt is not genuine and is aimed at fleecing the county.
