Dear Kenya today
Hide my identity
I would like to further expose the rot in tendering process at the Kenya Port authority it is facilitated by head of terminal engineer Tai and the acting procurement manager.
The part of the syndicate which is linked to and protected by the ministry of transport the corruption levels are so high that the winners of ongoing tenders are already known.
The empty container reach stacker kpa 093/2020-21TE which is a multi-million shilling stone that will be won by kalmar fronted by a local company known as powerparts , the technical specifications have been manipulated from the norm to meet the requirements of the procurement act but favour kalmar.
Interested reputable companies like sunny Ferrari fantuzzi ii-tc have cleverly been eliminated before tendering by KPA.
This is been achieved by buying a bigger and economic equipment to favour one company which eventually favour one company which will eventually of a price in order to raise money for brides the budget has been set incredible hi to offer room for overriding since the tender has been reduced to a one company affair powerparts.
The owner is known to host kps staff kids who study abroad in the UK power parts has never been investigated for all routes illegal activities in kPa despite numerous outcries a multi-billion ship to store (sts) crane tender no: kpa /092/2020-2021/cce, will be won by a local Mombasa politician.
This tender falls in the STS tender conventional cargo department but specifications were made by the head of terminal engineering to favour zpmc and therefore award the tender.
It is well known that the technical committee evaluation is influenced by cartels who have the procurement manager compromised in their favour.
This alone has led to numerous gender-related cases for instance the last reach stacker tender the tendering process at kPa is a mere shyam because tender awards and negotiated by cartels.
