Parliament raises questions over KES 24 B laptop tender

13 February 2014, 17:09 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Parliament has raised questions over the tendering process for the KES 24 billion laptop tender and have asked for the government to provide correspondence.

The house committee on education and technology has asked the government to detail the tendering process for the laptops after it emerged in some quarters that due diligence had not been followed in the tendering process.

In a meeting between the committee and government officials, concerns were raised over the willingness by government to provide evidence that the tender was legitimately handed out.

Indian firm Olive Technologies won the tender last month.

Education Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi had previously stated that the government is ready to provide proof that the tender was not irregularly awarded.

" The tender has been awarded to the company with the highest capability and at the most favourable price, he said. It is a win-win for the government.

Committee chair Sabina Chege urged the government to cooperate with parliament over the probe.

" This committee is here to verify the numerous claims that the tendering process is flawed and to shed light on the whole process for the benefit of Kenyans, she said.

The government is set to appear before the commitee when business resumes next week.
