Homa Bay governor Gladys Wanga and her deputy Oyugi Magwanga f;lagged off medical drugs amounting to Sh.60million from Kemsa to all heath facilities within the County and placed on notice cartels.
The drugs which include pharmaceutical and non pharmaceutical,will be distributed to all heath facilities within Homa Bay to enable efficient health service delivery, a key campaign pledge under former governor Cyprian Awiti.
“As we promised during our campaigns that heath sector will be our main priority,we are committed to the pledges and the work has just began, we commit to have enough drugs in all our health facilities within the County and this promise must be accomplished,” Wanga said.
During her swearing in on August Wanga promised to prioritise the health sector and allocate a huge chunk towards efficient service delivery to the people.
“We will ensure that huge chunk of funds are allocated in upgrading of our health facilities starting with Homa Bay County Refferal Hospital which will be upgraded to level five hospital,” said Wanga.
She also promised to upgrade Sub County hospitals and Health Centers which will be fully equipped and adequately staffed.
“We will ensure that together with other Sub County hospitals are improved,fully equipped, operational with dignified morgue,” she said.
There has been a public outcry over poor service delivery to the people of Homa Bay under former administration with problems of cartels stealing drugs being rampant.
She issued a tough warning to those stealing public drugs saying their time is over and whoever found culpable will face the consequences.
