Governors agree to KES 38 billion hospital deal

09 June 2015, 18:36 William Korir

Nairobi - Governors have agreed to the government fronted KES 38 billion deal to lease equipment for hospitals in the devolved governments.

Council of Governors chairman Peter Munya said Tuesday that Governors had agreed to the deal but would not be used by the government as a scapegoat for teething problems with healthcare at County level.

He stated that Governors did not want to take the blame in-case issues affect Kenyans.

" We don’t want to be blamed or be used as a scapegoat for the health problems that have hit the health sector in this country so we have agreed to this to get it off our backs," Munya said in Nairobi Tuesday.

Pressure has been mounting pressure from the National Government and the public for the Governors to sign the medical scheme but only one Governor had agreed to the deal; Machakos' Alfred Mutua.

" Counties are in different stages. We have different needs. They are unique in the health needs. We need a structured discussion to fit the different counties because we are in different levels of preparedness," he stated.

He insisted to Kenyans that Governors would take the burden of the deal but did not want to be seen as standing in the way of the process.

" We also don’t want to be seen as if we are a barrier to the Kenyan public accessing good healthcare and that’s why we have decided to give this olive branch though there are many issues that are yet to be discussed and clarified."

Governors will now sign the Memorandum of Understanding that will allow the of leased medical equipment that will be installed in all the 47 counties.

There are however some sticky points, like for example, Governors want to know how the payments will be made for the leasing of the equipment.

" We need some things ironed out then we will see the way forward," Munya urged caution.

Some Governors had already signed the Memorandum of Understanding despite serious opposition from some of the colleagues who insisted that the proper procedure had to be followed.

Those who signed were primarily from the ruling Jubilee coalition, having been put under pressure by their coalition chiefs to agree to the deal in order not to embarrass the government.
