Kimunya to face House over airport tender halt


Last week, Transport Minister Amos Kimunya told the Nation that he wanted the tender cancelled because Kenya Airways was not involved.

What you need to know:

  • The lengthy planning, master plan design and procurement process has cost the taxpayer an estimated Sh160 million and restarting the process may cost the same or more.
  • The tender was awarded to Anhui Construction company, a Chinese firm which wrote a letter of acceptance that was received at KAA on December 19.
  • It was not until January 10, that PS Njiru wrote, citing a directive from Mr Kimunya, ordering that the tender be cancelled.

Transport minister Amos Kimunya is expected to face Parliament on Thursday over the decision to cancel a Sh56 billion tender for a new airport.
