Eunice Cherono at KEMSA photo


Eunice Cherono, a nurse on Tuesday told members of the Public Investments Committee that God led her to the Sh42 million tender at the Kenya Medical Supplies Agency(KEMSA).

Eunice Cherono entreated the name of God telling her persistent prayers delivered the KEMSA tender.

She addressed the Mvita MP Abdulswamad Nassir-led committee that after fasting for several days due to bad economy, she walked to KEMSA and walked out with the deal without the intervention of any influential person or godfather in or outside the medical supplies authority.

“Before walking to KEMSA, the position of my company was so bad and I had prayed about these virus pandemic supplies. I prayed about it. And I can tell you without fear this is God’s doing. I prayed for it. God does miracles,” Cherono told the MPs.

The founder of Leon Interior Deco and Design Ltd said she went to KEMSA without any link.

Cherono upon interrogation was asked to explain how a company dealing with interior d├ęcor seized a tender to supply medical-related supplies.

Her company is not among those that are prequalified by KEMSA, with members raising attention she may have been used by some bigwig owing to her lack of capacity.

This was after Cherono reported that she sourced Sh30 million from another company — Mason Austin Ltd — whose owner she had neither met nor done business with before.

She admitted her company had never handled the pharmaceutical business since its incorporation in 2011.

“I can tell you without fear that God directed me there (KEMSA). I prayed and fast for it and I can tell you my prayer was answered," Cherono said.

She narrated to the committee that after walking to the agency, she found a receptionist who told her to wait after she explained that she was there to look for a tender to supply masks.

The woman, she said, helped her secure a letter of commitment of supplying masks and personal protective equipment.
