KNH Corporation Secretary in the Spotlight over Sudden Wealth and Extravagant Lifestyle

The corridors of Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) are not just pathways to healing but now, seemingly, a trail to uncovering deep-seated financial irregularities.

In the latest development, the spotlight turns to the Corporation Secretary and Director for Legal Services at KNH whose lifestyle and asset accumulation have raised red flags.

Our investigation reveals a man living well beyond the means of his official salary.

Sources claim that he owns an array of flats in Kasarani, a suburb that has seen a real estate boom in recent years.

“Hey Nyakundi, I have seen you have highlighted the KNH CEO EACC investigation. There is a guy there, a Company Secretary who has many flats Kasarani and lives a pompous lifestyle which can never be supported by his salary. Dig deeper and you will surprised. Protect my identity please. Thank you”

But how does a legal professional, even one with over a decade of experience as an Advocate of the High Court and a certified Corporate Secretary, amass such wealth?

The answer may lie hidden in the shadows of the hospital’s financial dealings.

This Secretary who also serves as a trustee for the KNH Staff Retirement Benefits Scheme, is privy to the inner workings of the hospital’s finances.

Could there be a connection between his role and the unexplained opulence?

This is a matter of public interest and integrity given that Kenyatta National Hospital is not a private corporation but a public institution funded by taxpayers’ money and entrusted with the health and well-being of millions.

It warrants attention when those at the helm display wealth that seems disproportionate to their role.

If unchecked, such disparities in wealth hint at a culture of impunity, where public officials exploit their positions for personal gain while the very institution they serve is left grappling with budget constraints and resource shortages.

We call upon the relevant authorities to take a closer look at this Secretary’s financial profile, especially consideiring these claims come amidst the ongoing investigations into financial irregularities at KNH.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) is probing KNH CEO Dr. Evanson Njoroge Kamuri over allegations of corruption and economic crimes amounting to Ksh 634,465,000.

This includes accusations of abuse of office, conflict of interest, and irregular award of tenders.

EACC has also frozen Ksh 28 million in his accounts as part of the investigation.

These revelations regarding the KNH Corporation Secretary and his wealth accumulation must be viewed in light of these broader allegations of financial misconduct within the hospital’s management.

We will continue to monitor the situation and report on any new developments as they unfold.
