Kaimenyi wont resign over laptops row

13 March 2014, 21:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Education Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi has said that he will not resign over the laptop tender row.

Kaimenyi is on the spot over the cancellation of the KES 24.6 Billion standard one laptop tender that was revoked this week.

The education ministry is on record as having supported the tender awarded to Indian firm Olive Technologies despite numerous questions asked over the capability of the company to deliver.

Kaimenyi too was in full support of the tender when he announced it in February.

" I am confident that the tendering process was fine and that Olive Technologies has the capability to deliver on the deal, he had said.

But with parliament going for his head over the matter, he has now come out to state that his conscience is clear over the whole process.

" I am very clear about the tender in that the right process was followed, he said in a press conference Thursday.

" Everything is on record as having been correctly done and my team and myself can attest to that, he added.

He did agree though that the decision made by the Public Procurement Board PCB to cancel the tender would be adhered to.

" We will follow the board's recommendations and re-tender, he added.

The PCB has given the education ministry 45 days to re-tender the deal, the Jubilee governments flagship project.
