The Government has defended its decision not to procure locally manufactured hospital beds from two young entrepreneurs in Githunguri, Kiambu County.

This after the deal stalled after it emerged that one of the men was facing several criminal allegations.

The revelations were made even as a visit to the workshop where the innovators claim to have been making and storing beds that have allegedly left them wallowing in debts showed little activity with only a single ready bed in sight.

The   President’s   Delivery   Unit   Secretary   Andrew   Wakahiu   revealed   that   the Government faced challenges processing the offer to procure the beds after obtaining intelligence Mungai Gathogo, 26, was facing at least three cases related to fraud and obtaining money by pretence.

Speaking in Githunguri, Mr. Wakahiu who was flanked by Gathogo further revealed that wrangles around the ownership of the firm that had first claimed to have been behind the beds further informed the Government reluctance to process the offer.

“After  we  visited  and  made  the  offer,  then  vicious  arguments  on  the  control  and management of the company between the two innovators and a man who claimed to be the real owner of the firm and that he had only contracted the duo to help market the beds emerged,” Mr Wakahiu said.

Notwithstanding the issues, Mr Wakahiu said the Government had gone out of its way to help the trio clear the debts it claimed it had incurred by offering to buy the entire stock of what was ready.

A lorry hired to ferry the beds the trio claimed to have made already was forced to return empty after it emerged there was no such goods despite Gathogo’s oft-repeated claims in the media.

Wakahiu says Gathogo  and his colleague, Joseph Muhinja, have claimed to have incurred loans of more than Ksh3.5 million ostensibly to import materials for the beds and in training and recruiting of labour.

He how said that at their workshop yesterday, there was little evidence of any activities. “We  came  here  prepared  to  buy  all  the  beds  and  other  materials  these  young  men claim to have made or procured. Regardless of the controversies around the young man and the firm’s ownership, as a Government, we don’t want their lives ruined by debt,” Mr Wakahiu said.

Records at the Githunguri police station indicate Gathogo has at least three pending criminal  cases:  OB  35/05/11/2019  and  OB  64/05/11/2019  relating  to  obtaining money  by  false  pretence  and  OB  51/21/10/2020  relating  to  an  incident  over  the disappearance of motor vehicle he had allegedly hired.

Wakahiu said as soon as the Government began the process of formalising the offer, a complainant from Nakuru claiming to have been conned Ksh800,000 by Gathogo emerged.

Records indicate Gathogo was locked up at Githunguri police cells for three days until his father refunded.

County  Woman  Representative  Gathoni  wa  Muchomba  however  pleaded  with  the Government to forgive Gathogo and commit to purchase the beds as initially pledged saying it was normal for men in the County to get into trouble. “If you expect to find young men from Kiambu who have no history of visiting police station,  you’ll  work  very  hard  because  our  men,  most  of  the  times. We try and rehabilitate them,” Wamuchomba said.
