In the recent Ministry of Health scandal, we got to find out that it has ordered and paid for 100 mobile clinics at a cost of Ksh1 billion. Payment was made to Estama Investments which had bought them from Chinese company Guangzhou Moneybox.
However, the product we got to see are just fabricated containers which cannot cost Ksh10 million each. If you do a search online from Guangzhou Moneybox’s Alibaba online shop, a modified shipping container costs between Ksh360,000 – Ksh1.2 million per unit.
The containers that were imported claim to have a consultation room, laboratory space, pharmacy space, toilet and air conditioner. Am sure diving a container into a number of spaces can’t cost Ksh8m since there were not equipped with high-tech gadget.
Here is what a mobile clinic looks like from First Lady’s Margaret Kenyatta’s Beyond Zero Campaign.
Here is what Ministry of Health got and called a mobile clinic.
If you have eyes and a sound mind, you can tell which one is worth Ksh10 million.
