Former NHIF CEO cleared of KES 1.1 billion corruption charges
The anti-graft court has allowed an application by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to drop corruption charges against former National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) CEO, Geoffrey Mwangi.
The charges, which amounted to a loss of KES 1.1 billion, were related to the award of a contract to Web Tribe Limited for the provision of integrated revenue collection.
Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Victor Wakumile, in a ruling, said that he allowed the application to withdraw the charges against Mwangi under section 87(a) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC). The magistrate stated that sufficient grounds had been laid in support of the application to withdraw the charges.
However, the DPP has been granted 15 days to review the charges against the remaining seventeen accused in the case.
The decision to withdraw the charges was prompted by a letter from Mwangi’s lawyer, Migosi Ogamba, which invited the DPP to find that there was no evidence to charge the former CEO.
In addition to Mwangi, Web Tribe Limited and its directors, Danson Muchemi and Robert Muna, were also charged with the loss of the KES 1.1 billion at NHIF.
The DPP dropped the charges against Web Tribe and its directors on June 8, 2020, after reviewing the file.
