Nandi woman representative wants the government to compel individuals involved in the Kemsa scandal to return the money.
Dr Tecla Tum said the stolen money should be recovered and used in the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment for medical officers.
Speaking in her office in the county, Tum said the Asset Recovery should take action and ensure the stolen funds were recovered and used wisely.
The legislator said health workers were risking their lives due to lack of protective equipment when some culprits pocketed millions of shillings.
“Health workers should be treated right. Those mentioned in the scandal should return the money immediately,” she said.
Tum observed that the country could have been miles ahead in development, but corruption was sinking it deeper into poverty and misery.
Tum was leading a fundraiser for construction of houses for the needy across the county.
She has already given out 155 tents to various groups of women, youth and Persons With Disabilities to empower them.
She revealed plans to give out bursaries to 380 students.
“All I want is to empower people and improve their livelihoods,” she said.
Over Sh200,000 was raised during the fundraiser with funds intended to build more houses for the less fortunate with over 50 already completed.
