The former Minister of Special Programs who marked her 62nd birthday on Monday vowed to defend her seat come the next elections.
Murugi further asked the anti-corruption agency to investigate graft allegations facing County governments following Auditor General’s report.
“It is sad that patients at Nyeri hospitals went without food for three days while the County government prioritized on buying other items including beds. That was inhuman and unethical,” stated Murugi.
She noted that Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) should push for prosecution of public officers misappropriating public funds.
