Nairobi - Controversy over of the ambitious KES 4.2 billion civil servants medical cover scheme got messier on Thursday following mystery over the ownership of one of the key contracted health providers.

According to Daily Nation reports, Clinix Healthcare Limited which was allocated KES 202 million in the first quarter is owned by Pharma Investment Holdings, an off-shore company, not registered in Kenya and owns 99 per cent shares and a local company — Beneficial Limited — has one per cent shares.

State Counsel Margaret Wangu, in a letter to Parliament says documents presented for registration of the limited liability company indicate it is registered in the British Virgin Islands under number C. 1028943, which has led to the Parliamentary Committee on Health believe there is a cover up scheme.
