The controversial Jubilee Party vice chair David Murathe  today apprared before the Public Investments Committee to shed light over his involvement in the Sh4 billion Kemsa tender.

He denied any involvement, saying the matter has made him a target for relatives seeking handouts.

Last week, Murathe openly accepted and explained that he  was just a bank guarantor for a firm implicated in the Sh7.8 billion Kemsa scandal

In an affidavit submitted to the Public Investments Committee, the politician said he guaranteed Kilig Ltd.

He denied being a director, shareholder or beneficial owner of Kilig, a company  that was awarded a Sh4 billion tender to supply 450,000 personal protective equipment to Kemsa

It has been realised that the company  was not  even pre-qualified to tender by the Kenya Medical Supplies Agency.

In  the affidavit Murathe said that he was requested by Kilig – then under the directorship of Wilbroad Gachoka and a Chinese national Zhu Jinping – to guarantee payments to a Chinese firm trading as ENTEC Ltd.
