Nairobi - The Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS) has maintained that it is blameless in the ongoing saga involving the distribution of contaminated Unimix to schools in parts of Eastern, North Eastern and Coast regions, Capital News reports.
In a statement to the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture, KRCS Secretary General Abbas Gullet said that his organisation was the whistle blower as they called in the Kenya Bureau of Standards to verify the quality of food that was being supplied to it by Proctor & Allan.
The committee led by Naivasha MP John Mututho heard that the Kenya Bureau of Standards had conducted initial tests at Proctor & Allan’s plant during the manufacture of the food, but not later when the food was already out for distribution as alleged by Proctor’s Managing Director Judy Macharia.
