Graft body investigates poll kits tender

16 August 2013, 09:46

Nairobi - The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) is investigating at least six alleged irregularities in the KES 1.3 billion procurement of voting equipment acquired by the electoral commission.

The Standard reports that the EACC filed a request at the High Court on Thursday to search three homes of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chief executive officer, James Oswago, due to breaches to procurement rules in the award of the tender for the supply of Biometric Electronic Voter Kits (BVRs) that failed during the general election in March.

According to EACC’s filings, Face Technologies, the South African firm awarded the tender was unable to supply the kits in the initial contract and allegedly altered the specifications without approval of the tender committee, raising reasonable suspicion of misconduct in the process.
