She was forced to take break off Online platforms owing after being linked to Orinda, who had revealed he contracted the virus from her. On Christmas Day, Cherotich announced she will be battling for Miss Tourism crown in Malaysia for the 2020/21 contest.

This, according to the sponsors of the event, will be the first ever Online event on January 17. Cherotich, who has been listed number 19 on the pageant website, will battle out with 30 other beauties from various countries in a bid to clinch the crown.
In the conversation with Uhuru, Cherotich said she had been in quarantine for 23 days contradicting her earlier reports that she had been in quarantine for 22 days. Cherotich also divulged that a mild cough and fever forced her to check in at Mbagathi Hospital after calling the toll free number given by the government and it went unanswered.
This instigated an Online backlash after Orinda, patient number 3, claimed he contracted the virus from Brenda.
“I got the disease through contact with Brenda. Immediately her results were out, the authorities came for me. When I tested positive, they embarked on my treatment,” Orinda said in the conversation with President Uhuru.
However, Cherotich denied having known Orinda before and that they met when he was taken to an isolation ward in Mbagathi hospital but later introduced another twist that he was one of the people who had been at her house in Rongai, after her return from the US.
Cherotich, who studied at Moi Girls in Eldoret and later pursued Formation Technology course is the former Miss Tourism Kenya Hospitality from 2018 to 2020.
