High Court postpones laptop tender case
30 April 2014, 19:15
Nairobi - The High Court has postponed a case in which a company is seeking to reverse the cancellation of the KES 24.6 billion laptop tender.
Justices George Kimondo, Mumbi Ngugi and George Odunga postponed the hearing of the case to 30 June since the respondents to the case had not apparently been served with the suit papers.
The respondents are the Public Procurement and Review Board (PPRB), Ministry of
Education, Hewlett- Packard (HP) and Haier Electrical Appliances
In March, the High Court suspended the laptop tender pending a court case lodged by Indian firm Olive Technologies who had won the initial tender by the government.
The tender was cancelled by the Public Procurement Board after it was ascertained that the tender was irregularly awarded.
Olive thus went to court to stop the ministry of education from re- advertising the tender.
The laptop tender was one of the key pledges by the jubilee government in its election campaigns.
