Jubilee Vice-chairman David Murathe has been making headlines lately owing to his connection with Kilig limited, a company which was awarded a ksh 4 Billion tender to supply personal protective equipment to KEMSA.

While appearing before the public investiments committee yesterday, Murathe sought to set the record straight about his Involvement with the company.

"Mr chairman people out here have been made to think that I am a Covid billionaire, you need to protect me.

Facilitating a friend to do their business you do not need to ask for benefits, it is sad when we allow such innuendos," he said as quoted by the Standard.

He added, "I have not supplied not even a single mask or any PPE, now my relatives think I am a covid billionaire. This title has given me much trouble because now everyone is calling me to lend them money".

However, he admitted that he was a gurantor for the implicated firm which was awarded the contract two months after registeration yet it was not pre-qualified to tender by KEMSA.

Murathe revealed that he was requested by Kilig limited's then director Wilbroda Gachoka and a Chinese National Zhu Jinping to guarantee payment to a Chinese firm trading as Entec LTD.

He further alleged that the company is owned by people who are close allies to deputy president William Ruto.

"I am not a director of Killig, I did not get a contract with Kemsa and I did not supply to it. Killig is a company owned by people associated with the DP.

They approach people who can finance through the lawyer and transfer the company to the new owners," he said.

Nevertheless, as he links Ruto to the ksh 7.8 billion scam, here is what the deputy president Predicted last year when he was first linked to KEMSA Billions.

Taking to his twitter account and without mentioning names, he said that people who were bankrupt in 2013 are now billionnaires after looting while scapegoating Ruto.

Ruto added that such people have nowhere to hide and no more scapegoating.

According to the one local publication, Murathe had filed for temporary bankruptcy to avoid auctioneers over a ksh 50 Million loan facility he borrowed in 2005.

The enemity between the two started when Murathe launched an Onslaught to stop Ruto from succeeding president Uhuru Kenyatta when his term expires in 2022.

As the blame game continues, accusations and counter-accusations, Kenyans are patiently waiting to see the real suspects who are hiding behind 'small fish' arraigned in court and surcharged.
