Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe risks a six-month jail term for disobeying court orders barring him from allowing the military to take over Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA). In a certificate of urgency filed in court, Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) wants CS Kagwe committed to jail together with Chairperson of KEMSA board Mary Mwadime, and acting Chief Executive Officer John Kiumi Kabuchi for failure to honour orders issued last in November 2021. Through their lawyer Henry Kurauka, KMPDU accuses the CS and KEMSA’s top officials of continuing to fail to obey the orders suspending the termination of the doctor’s employment without following due process and allowing Kenya Defence Forces and National Youth Service from taking over the institution’s activities.
