The¬†Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission¬†(EACC) might have to interrogate President Uhuru Kenyatta’s entire cabinet for the irregular award of a tender.
Citizen TV reports that the anti-graft watchdog is investigating a Ksh 40 Billion tender for the construction of an oil terminal in Kipevu.¬†
EACC swung into action following claims¬†that the tender was irregularly awarded to a Chinese company.¬†¬†
The company which won the tender is known as China Communications Construction Company Limited (CCCC).
Interestingly, the tender had been inspected and approved at a full cabinet meeting chaired by the president.¬†¬†
As such, EACC might have to probe Uhuru’s entire cabinet as it seeks to understand how the tender was awarded.
The tender was first challenged in August 2018 by Owen Nga’ang’a Gitau.
Through his lawyers, Gitau wrote to Public Procurement Regulatory Authority¬†(PPRA) protesting the award of the tender to the CCCC.
He claimed that the firm that had been from participating in any procurement process by the World Bank for committing corrupt and fraudulent acts.¬†
