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.
