The Governor participated in the meeting accompanied by the County Secretary Francis Sakuda, Finance and Economic Planning CEC Member Alais Kisota and his Health Services counterpart Esther Somoire.
The team tabled documentary evidence on the queries raised by the Auditor General’s report with the Senators asking for further submission of documents responding to questions that arose at the meeting.
Among the queries that were addressed and whose documents were availed was the contractual agreement between the County Government and BOC Gases for the supply of oxygen to local health facilities.
The Auditor General also sought to know the items procured by Plan Healthcare Ltd to warrant a payment of Sh 11 Million in May last year.
The Auditors also sought an explanation on all the allowances paid to front line health workers which included arrears for other delayed allowances.
The Senators were also interested in the management of the County Emergency Fund in relation to urgent supplies during the COVID 19 period.
The CEC Finance also explained why he introduced and delegated a senior staff in the Department as an additional signatory to the Emergency Fund.
The Fund was largely used to purchase food supplies to vulnerable families across the County.
