Nairobi - The sex toys bought by the Devolution Ministry were for education purposes, PS Fred Mangiti has said.
There has been controversy in recent weeks over the acquisition of the toys by the ministry for purposes that were not clear.
First off, there was denial of the purchases by the Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru but in a press conference Monday, Mangiti admitted that the toys had been bought and sought to explain why.
He stated that the sex toys, condom dispensers and other things were necessary for sex education and protection.
" We need our employees safe and so everything bought was to educate them," he said Monday in his office.
He also stated that the figures that had been handed out as concerns the purchase of items at the ministry to a Parliamentary Committee were all false and that he would present different figures.
" What was presented was not accurate at all and the most accurate is available now," he added.
Mangiti has been under pressure for allegedly setting up Waiguru by releasing the doctored report.
Waiguru has been blamed by many for the theft of over KES 826 million at the ministry with many asking her to step aside as a result.
