Yesterday, a middle-aged woman left kenyans and members of Public Investment Committee jaws dropped in amazement after she revealed that she received a Kshs 42 million tender at KEMSA through God and prayers.
Eunice Cherono,who is a nurse and a Director of Leon and Design Limited, invoked God as a 'miracle worker' who helped her secure a tender to supply masks to Kenya Medical Supplies Agency (KEMSA).
Even after unrelenting persuasion from Mvita MP Honorable Abdulswanad Nassir,who chaired the comittee, to mention the individuals who facilitated her tender,Ms Eunice Cherono maintained that there was no interferance of any influential person.
"At the time,my company was not doing well and i had prayered to God for give me a tender for Covid-19 supplies.I later visited Kemsa,and through God and prayers, i walked out with the tender," she told the committee.
A day after she made this revelation,allegations have emerged claiming that Ms Eunice Cherono has a propinquity with Soy member of parliament.
According to the rumour mills swirling around the social media circle,Eunice Cherono is alleged to be a sister-in-law to former Jubilee party Secretary General and DP Ruto's right-hand man,Honorable Caleb Kositany.
Drawing both conviction and skepticism,the allegations ignited mixed reactions from kenyans online,some terming them as "malicious political witchhunt" while others claimed that the lady was used a "conveyor belt" by some powerful people in the government.
"Of course she prayed very well,from a nurse to a millionaire,God really is great," on online user wrote.
"What's the issue here or some people are not supppsed to receive tenders," countered another.
In other related news,in The Star newspaper, an article reported that the Public Investments committee alleges to have established a connection of Nairobi Senator and Deputy President to a comapny known as 'Shop N Buy' which won a kshs 1 billion tender at KEMSA supply PPE kits.
This comes as probe on KEMSA supplies continues in a bid to unmask the trail of millions of money,meant to buy Covid-19 supplies,were alleged to have been misused.
