“Our attention has been drawn by social media posts speculating her unexplained death. NHIF wishes to advise the members of the public to avoid speculation and to allow relevant investigative authorities to conclusively handle the matter surrounding her untimely death,” the statement read in part.
NHIF dismissed the claims that Waithera might have been killed after exposing a Ksh 1 billion case involving a former senior employee by the name of Geoffrey Mwangi.
“Furthermore, the Fund would like to reiterate that Mr. Geoffrey Mwangi is not the Chief Executive Officer of NHIF as alleged in a report making rounds on social media,” part of the statement read.
