Good Morning Kenyans.
President William Ruto on Monday cracked the whip on one of his government appointments.
Ruto dismissed Health PS Josephine Mburu over the new scandal at KEMSA.
Mburu becomes the first government official to be sent home since Ruto took power.
The no-nonsense Head of State also went after the board at the medical facility over an alleged scandal regarding the supply of mosquito nets.
The move came hours after the president vowed to take action on the claimed scandal during an interview with journalists from the local media houses.
This brings us to the big question, was Ruto’s drastic move justified?
