Laptop tendering process unlawful: High Court

24 September 2014, 18:11 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The laptop tendering process was unlawful and must be re-done, the High Court has said.

In a ruling Wednesday in Nairobi, a three judge bench ruled that the tendering process which awarded the tender to India's Olive Technologies was unbalanced and unfair.

Judges George Kimondo, George Odunga and Mumbi Ngugi said their ruling is meant to promote equity and cost effectiveness in the tendering process.

They further said that the tender must be re-done by the Public Procurement Administrative Review Board PPARB.

The tender award to Olive had earlier been cancelled by the procurement board who had then proceeded to directed the Ministry of Education to review the remaining two Best and conclude the tendering process.

Olive though, had run to court to protest the decision.

The Judges however insisted that Olive were free to bid for the tender afresh, which will have a cost of KES 22.4 billion.

The laptop tender process has been hit by several roadblocks, with this the latest of a lot that has threatened to derail the whole process.

The laptop project was one of the key election promises of the Jubilee coalition.
