As at last month, detectives are said to have been investigating four separate allegations of theft of funds at the national health insurer.

In a letter dated September 10, 2020, detectives were investigating allegations of fraud involving healthcare providers in Kenya.

In addition, the health insurer is also on the spotlight over the appointment of directors and heads of department who are allegedly not qualified for the job.null

In yet another letter, the investigative body is investigating the fraudulent acquisition of public property.

In 2018, there was another scandal where it emerged that at least Ksh1.5 billion of taxpayers money disappeared at the health insurer.

Eighteen suspects among them former National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) CEOs Geoffrey Mwangi and Simon Kirgotty were charged over the alleged loss.

Anti-corruption court Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti issued the various charges, however, Kirgotty and Mwangi denied the damaging allegations and were released on a cash bail of Ksh2 million each.

Some of the suspects were released on a cash bail of Ksh1 million and others Ksh 300,000.
