Sonko was to receive KES1.3B bribe

31 March 2015, 15:13 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko was to receive part of a KES 1.3 billion bribe to help push through a deal for the Kenya Pipeline Company KPC.

Sonko was allegedly in cahoots with suspended energy CS Davis Chirchir to vouch for SINOPEC company instead of ZAKHEM to build a pipeline from Mombasa to Nairobi.

The tender eventually went to ZAKHEM but Chrichir is alleged to have been offered the KES 1.38 billion to help push through the deal for SINOPEC and was to share the money with Sonko.

All this was revealed in the Ethics and Anti Corruption EACC report on corruption within public offices officially released Tuesday.

Chirchir has already stepped out of office as he awaits the investigations to be completed, but the fact that Sonko was also allegedly a part of the deal raises new questions.

The Pipeline deal was contested by the firms that lost out, saying that there were procedural problems.

KPC insisted that the tender award to Zakhem was in order as the company had offered to complete the project under KES 10 billion less than the project engineer had set the budget at which was KES 53 billion.

ZAKHEM came top of the tendering process with 95.5 percent pass rate, while SINOPEC was third with 84.5 percent.
