Millions lost by govt in fradulent tenders

19 August 2013, 09:33

Nairobi - Following the move by cabinet secretaries to cancel sate contracts deemed fraudulent, Kenya stands to lose billions of shillings in penalties, Daily Nation reports.

Some of the penalties could come after Mining Secretary Najib Balala cancelled more than 40 licences and contracts awarded earlier this year while Labour Secretary Kazungu Kambi stopped NSSF from awarding new contracts and ordered an audit into all ongoing projects initiated by the fund.

The Attorney-General was not consulted before most of the cancellations were done, and neither were the regulations of termination of contracts observed, which leaves the government exposed to not only penalties but lawsuits.
