The Nandi County government through the Health docket has received a consignment of drugs worth Kshs 10 million from the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA). Speaking at the Kapsabet County Referral Hospital during the flagging off of the drugs to various health facilities across the County, Nandi Deputy Governor Dr. Yulita Cheruiyot said the County administration will ensure there is a steady supply of drugs in all facilities. “We’ll continue to supply important drugs in all the 168 health facilities across Nandi,” she affirmed.
The Deputy Governor urged the health officials to keep watch and make sure no drugs are stolen, and gave a stern warning to any person who’ll be nabbed, saying stern action will be taken against them. Complaints had emerged concerning a shortage of drugs in health facilities in Nandi, especially at the Kspabet County Referral hospital and allegations of neglect which has raised eyebrows, but the Deputy Governor refuted the claims, terming them political.
She noted that no cases of negligence have been reported in any of the hospitals and health facilities and that service delivery to residents is the Governor’s key priority in his transformational agenda.
