MPs threaten to blacklist Japan firm

15 December 2011, 15:33

MPs have threatened to blacklist a Japanese firm that won the Sh3 billion consultancy contract on the multibillion Lamu Port project.

The House Committee on Transport, Public Works and Housing issued the threats to the Japanese Port Consultants, after the latter refused to answer questions citing confidentiality clauses in the signed contracts.

In the end, the MPs flexed their oversight powers and kicked out the consultants who won the Sh3 billion tender, and warned that, should JPC persist with their refusal to divulge the details of the contract, then the House will have no option but to push for its termination and the blacklisting of the consultants so that they don’t get any other project in the country.
