Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has refused to append his signature to a deal which would have the national government lease modern medical equipment worth Sh38 billion.

Health Cabinet Secretary Cleopa Mailu told senators today that the equipment was on the way and delivery was expected to be completed by end of June.

He said the ministry had received support from the county bosses as it pushed for the equipment to be delivered to the devolved units.
