Irregular award of tenders blights Nakuru County

03 February 2014, 17:43 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru County Assembly Members (MCAs) are plotting to oust the County Procurement Officer, Elizabeth Masaku for failing to award tenders to County residents.

The MCAs have faulted the Procurement Officer for awarding tenders to people outside the County.  

According to one MCA who spoke with the media on Monday, they are planning to mobilize the public in the coming days to hold a demonstration in town to have Masaku ousted.

“The procurement officer has not been giving our people tenders yet the Jubilee government stated that there will be 30% jobs for vulnerable groups,” said the MCA.

However, the MCA said that the officer is receiving protection from senior leaders in County government who do not want her being removed from office.

The MCA also disclosed that last Friday they held a special session at the assembly over the matter but nothing was agreed upon since the speaker was against the removal of Masaku.

“We held a sitting to discuss this matter but madam speaker was against the removal of the officer and so the meeting ended unexpectedly,” said the MCA.

On her part, the Masaku said that all bidders of tenders must follow the due process.

“There is a process which must be followed when bidding for tenders and this is something that is well stipulated in the constitution of Kenya,” said Masaku

Meanwhile, a political pundit in the town, Daniel Nyamwea has said the MCAs have no power to remove the officer since she is employed by the National Transitional Authority which is under the central government.

Daniel Nyamwea termed the attempts to oust Masaku as mere politics.

“The MCAs are fighting a losing battle since Masaku is not employed by the Nakuru government; she was posted here by the National Transition Authority,” he said.
