The document also alleged that the head of state had ordered daily updates on the status of the investigations.
However, State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena clarified to kenyagist.com that the letter was fake.

EACC is currently investigating the scandal while the Kenya Medical Supplies Agency Board suspended its CEO Jonah Manjari.
Manjari, who was to appear before the Senate Health Committee on Thursday claimed he had been taken ill.
Senators demanded that the suspended executive produces documents proving that he had been hospitalised.
The scandal has sent shockwaves across the country due to the sentitivty of the matter, even as Kenya’s donors begin to make demands for the country to be accountable.
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Global Fund wrote to the government expressing concerns over the alleged corruption.
Health Principal Secretary Susan Mochache expressed hope that the funding would not be stopped after the concerns were addressed.
â€œWe will still be getting help but in a different form. We are doing all we can to reclaim our lost glory,â€ she said.
