Kericho Governor Prof. Chepkwony Busted By US Ambassador McCarter Over Donation



Politicians can be very sleek and only keen eyes can see this. Kericho Governor Prof. Paul Kiprono Chepkwony was unveiling a mass testing drive for Covid-19. The project was sponsored by the US through CDC and initial unveiling in January.

So since right  now everyone is scoring political points with the different mitigation measures, the Governor found an opening for advancing his political points.

He made it look like a county’s own brainchild and KEMRI’s which is in-fact not the truth.

Until someone curious in the comments raised a flag.

And none other than the US ambassador replied;

Left with egg on his face, the Governor immediately replied to save the face.

And as diplomatic as it gets, he helped him and let it slide.

Many uninformed people would’ve easily let the Governor run with the points. The truth is if hear things about KEMRI in any of these places, truth is
1. Kisumu = CDC (like american MOH) @CDCKenya
2. Kericho = WRP (US army research)
3. Kilifi = Wellcome trust (UK program) @KEMRI_Wellcome
4. Busia = A project by Prof. Mwau (we dont have the name).
