MPs suspend KES 43B Kenya Pipeline project

02 July 2014, 18:45 William Korir

Nairobi - Members of Parliament have suspended the KES 43 billion Kenya Pipeline project that aims to build a pipeline from Mombasa to Nairobi over irregularities in the award of tender.

The Aden Keynan led Public Investments Committee PIC wants the tender audited to confirm its viability and overall purpose.

Speaking in Parliament buildings Wednesday while presenting its findings the PIC insisted that there were irregularities with its award and called on the government to stall it whilst investigations continue.

Lebanese firm Zakhem International won the tender award which has now been signed by the two parties after seeing off 11 other companies by producing a lower quote.

The decision to sign the deal was contested in court but the Public Procurement Committee and the courts said it was legal.

Keynan said that they PIC saw it fit to suspend the tender after Pipeline boss Charles Tanui failed to appear before them.

" This is the seventh time he has failed to appear for a summon. We have serious issues pending here and he has not appeared, Keynan said.

He insisted that there were several issues that needed addressing before the contract goes through and said that it is best it stays suspended up and till when the issues are solved.

" We have suggested that investigations continue until the award is given a clean bill of health or otherwise, he said.

On his part, Tanui has previously called investigations into the tender award scandalous and unfair.

" I think that we have gone through this process on a number of occasions and it has been found that the  deal is above water, he said.
