MPs suspend KES 14B Safaricom surveillance tender

05 June 2014, 17:23 William Korir

Nairobi - MPs have suspended the newly created national surveillance system by Safaricom over issues with the tendering process.

The parliamentary committee on national security made the decision Thursday evening, concluding that there was indeed need to investigate the tender over alleged malpractices.

Committee chair Asman Kamama said after a three hour meeting that there was need to suspend the tender since it was yet to be signed by both parties.

" We have suspended it chiefly because it has yet to be signed to allow thorough investigations into the tender, he said.

He accused internal security cabinet secretary Joseph Ole Lenku of not providing enough information over the deal and said that there were just too many holes in the deal for it to go on.

" We have yet to receive satisfactory information from the relevant offices and have agreed to suspend it until we get enough inside information on it, he added.

The tender was directly awarded to Safaricom.

The government is hoping to use the new system to close in on criminals using a high tech platform that was to be created by Safaricom.

" We are putting our resources into improving our intelligence unit as part of the bigger plan to reduce levels of insecurity as well as counter terrorism, president Uhuru Kenyatta had said of the deal.
