Dear IMF President International Monetary Fund

In the past 12 months, the Kenya Government has received about 700 Billion (7.0 Billion USD) for COVID-19 Response in either loans or grants from external partners, IMF inclusive!

However, as of today, the Kenyan hospitals don't have any space currently for covid patients, ICUs are full, testing is low with only about 8,000 tests per day, no oxygen in our hospitals, no safety net programs for the vulnerable.

Mr. IMF President, please kindly note that Millions of Kenyans can't even afford to be tested for COVID-19 since the Government is charging about 30 USD, while those in hospitals for COVID-19 treatment are paying about 100 USD per day, and those in severe condition are paying about 1,000 USD per day.

Mr. IMF President, our national hospital insurance known as National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) is not catering for any COVID-19 treatment, and poor Kenyans have to dig into their pockets for treatment, otherwise, they are dying for lack of proper medication despite all the aid given to the government.

As I pen this Mr. IMF President, Millions of Kenyans have lost their livelihood especially in the hospitality, tourism, entertainment sectors among others; yet, no intervention has been put by the Government.

Mr. IMF President, between June and August year, our country was shocked to hear that Billions of USD Shillings donated for COVID-19 Response had been looted, while in January 2021, the President of the Republic of Kenya confessed that nearly 20 Million USD is stolen everyday in Kenya.

Kindly reconsider your approval of the 2.34 Billion USD since 80% of this money is likely to end up in the pocket of the few power brokers in Kenya.
