The Ministry of Health has suspended its procurement officers pending investigations into irregular procurement deals. Speaking when he appeared before the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee on Monday, Permanent Secretary Dr. Lackson Kasonka said the unit has since been closed for business and will only resume once investigations are concluded.
The Public Accounts Committee has also been informed that security wings are still conducting a search for financial documents in the procurement unit.
His statement came after Public Accounts Committee chairperson Warren Mwambazi wondered him why he was giving unclear answers when asked by committee members.
The Ministry of Health is embroiled in several financial irregularities, leading to the current swift action. This led to sealing off of the ministry by security wings last Friday.
