The management at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital (JOOTRH) has been put on the spotlight over claims of massive corruption in tender procurement. One Olivia Adhiambo,an accountant is perceived to be operating dubious companies known for hijacking lucrative tenders at the institution.
Out of Sh47 million meant for development at the facility Sh30 million was paid out to KEMSA whose dues had accumulated exponentially for reasons only known to the accountant. The remaining Sh 17 million she is accused to having paid out to her decoy companies.
A list exposing a host of companies that the accountant allegedly operates through proxies who are either friends or relatives to loot millions of shillings from the hospital through skewed tender procurement at JOOTRH has been exposed and the new Kisumu CeC for health Miguda Atyang petitioned to swing into swift action and ensure that corruption at the hospital is dealt and companies winning tenders at the hospital are not owned by top hospital employees.
One of the companies mentioned is Netconsoles which has been contracted to do the cabro pavement at the facility. It is allegedly owned by Adhiambo’s co-wife Consolata Achieng with the husband James Ogoto believed to be funding it. Another company is Jakahongo Limited awarded the cleaning services tenders, Insiders say the company had to bribe evaluation committee about Sh1.2 million to win the tender and replace another company. The company has a cousin of Adhiambo as the director.
Others include Akidos Venture, Moobrow, Erastado and Marcdanation Ventures.
The accountant who was recently involved in a government reshuffle has amassed an incredible amount of wealth in a very short time raising red flags. Corruption at these government institutions should be investigated and action taken immediately. At one point last year, she was allegedly caught in the act when she had gone to the bank to withdraw Sh700K and reportedly added a zero to the figure making it Sh7M.
