Despite conducting his illicit business in Bomet, the suspect possessed an expired license intended for Kajiado County, according to County Health Chief Officer Felix Langat. 

He accused unnamed county medical personnel of working along with private establishments to pilfer medications from public health institutions.

“We have leads that some county health officers are behind this mess, we already have names of suspects who are yet to record a statement on this unfortunate incident, we are warning them to stop, or they face consequences,” said Langat.

At the same time, he added that a major crackdown on all the private facilities in the county operating without all the requirements had started.
