BREAKING NEWS: Big Blow To Uhuru As Another Multibillion Scandal Emerges

It has come to light that the French EPC company Vinci Group, which was offered the contract for the Shs160 billion Nairobi-Nakuru-Mau Summit Highway, was allegedly helped along by people who were close to former President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The National Treasury's Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Unit, which is in charge of monitoring transparency and accountability in the procurement of all PPP projects, was the first to raise concerns about the irregularities in the manner in which the Vinci Group was offered the tender, revealing how Jubilee allegedly rigged a Shs160 billion road deal, according to reports.

Details revealed that the Vinci Group's bid for the tender contained a significant error in the calculation of income taxes. In addition, it came to light that KeNHA decided to disregard the flaw in the Vinci's bid that was pointed out by the Private Public Partnership Unit. According to reports, KeNHA argued that the errors were minor and could have been caused by computation errors.

After deciding to ignore the errors, KeNHA requested clarification and correction from Vinci, according to additional information. When the documents were given to the PPP Review Committee, it was made aware of the differences in the Vinci bid.

The PPP review committee also said that KeNHA had made a big mistake by letting Vinci change their bidder, which was against the law.

KeNHA was told by the PPP Unit review committee to stop buying the Shs160 billion Nairobi-Nakuru-Mau Summit project. However, KeNHA maintained its position and awarded the contract to the Vinci Group despite allegedly disregarding all bid errors. It is alleged that influential political backers provided KeNHA with support.
