    “I was not in a robe. I wore a pashmina shawl. The fact that it was maroon in colour made people think that it is a bathrobe,†the CEC explained.

    He went on to confirm that the zoom meeting went on as scheduled.

    The Nairobi County Government  and Nairobi Metropolitan Services were invited by the Senate Health Committee to respond to queries by the Auditor General on the expenditure of Covid-19 funds used by county governments in the Special Audit Report.

    The committee inquired about the whereabouts of other members from the county government including Deputy Governor Anne Kananu who were absent.

    County Secretary Justus Musumba responded saying that he had not received an official invite for the meeting.

    “I wrote to the clerk of the health committee on whether the county government should appear but did not get any response,†Musumba stated.
