Additionally, the commission was able to get court orders freezing his Housing Finance bank accounts holding Sh28 million. The CEO allegedly obtained the funds from the hospital through corrupt means, according to the detectives.

Allegations of Sh634,465,000 corruption at KNH have Dr. Kamuri under investigation. On Wednesday morning, the sleuths raided Kamuri’s office and made off with a trove of documents, catching many by surprise.
