High Court halts standard one laptop tender

19 March 2014, 18:55 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The High Court has halted the standard one laptop tender process until a case challenging the legibility of a decision to review the tendering process is heard.

The decision was reached at after Olive Technologies, who had gone to court earlier in the day challenging the decision by the Public Procurement Board PCB to cancel the KES 24.6 Billion tender.

Judge Weldon Korir barred the PCB from executing the 45 day ultimatum to the ministry of education to consider tenders from Olive's rivals Haier and Hewlett and Packard.

Judge Korir said it would defeat logic to allow the tendering process go on with such a high profile appeal in court and said it would only be allowed to go on when the matter has been resolved.

" It would be unfair to the petitioner as well as the public to let such a high profile process go on considering the high stakes, he said.

Olive Telecommunications through lawyer Mohammed Nyaoga have been directed to serve the PCB, the Ministry of Education, HP and Haier as interested parties with the suit papers.

The hearing will taje place beginning April 10.

The ruling will be a further blow to the Jubilee government's flagship project which has had its fair share of problems from the onset.

The PCB had argued in its decision to cancel the tender that Olive's capability to roll out the laptops was in question due to financial and logistical issues.
