Two Kenyan nurses indicted in Ksh12.3b fraud


A Kenyan-born nurse based in the U.S has pleaded guilty in connection with a 12 Billion shillings home health care fraud scheme. Winnie Waruru was charged alongside her co-accused Faith Newton of swindling Massachusetts State of 100 million USD through making false claims and billings to a programme that provides health coverage for low income earners. According to details of the case, the two allegedly billed MassHealth and Medicare, for fraudulent home health services and paid kickbacks to induce patient referrals some of which were unnecessary. And as Serfine Achieng reports, the US government has also filed a civil action seeking forfeiture of five properties and 40 financial accounts and investments funded by proceeds of the multi-billion shillings fraud scheme.
