We recently had the pleasure of catching up with 26 year old Mercy Nyerere. She revealed to us her personal life, passion for her work and also gave us very important health advice.
Who is Mercy and what does she do?
I am a gorgeous,intelligent and humble lady working as a pharmacist in Kajiado County. I was born and bred in Kisumu County, went to Kisumu Girls High School before proceeding to Kenya Medical Training College in Nyeri where I undertook studies in pharmacy.
There has been an outcry over fake medicine flooding the Kenyan market. Is this true according to you?
Yeah true. Normally it’s advisable to buy original drugs since fake medicine is usually packaged as as generic. If someone buys a generic drug, he/she has increased the chances of having purchased a fake product compared to a personal who buys and original drug.

Painkillers are the quick moving drugs in any pharmacy but antibiotics are mostly abused. Kenyans should be educated on the dangers of taking antibiotics without a doctor’s prescription. Condoms are also fast moving although I rarely see women buying them, just men.
