Breaking News: EACC Freezes KNH Boss Evanson Kamuri’s Accounts Over Corruption Allegations

Evanson Kamuri

Detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission carried out a raid on the offices of Kenyatta National Hospital as part of their investigation into Dr. Evanson Njoroge Kamuri, the hospital’s CEO.

Additionally, the commission was able to get court orders freezing his Housing Finance bank accounts holding Sh28 million. The CEO allegedly obtained the funds from the hospital through corrupt means, according to the detectives.

Allegations of Sh634,465,000 corruption at KNH have Dr. Kamuri under investigation. On Wednesday morning, the sleuths raided Kamuri’s office and made off with a trove of documents, catching many by surprise.

While he has been released by the detectives after being held briefly, the commission has announced the commencement of investigations into the accusations including alleged abuse of office, engaging in conflicts of interest, and irregularly awarding tenders to companies linked to him.

The institution’s overall operations have been impacted by the stalemate between Kamuri and some of the directors. Despite being the largest referral hospital in the region, KNH has fallen short in providing services that meet its requirements.
