Deputy President William Ruto has been on the forefront in castigating Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) together with his Tanga Tanga Members of Parliament.
In a series of rallies held countrywide, the former minister of Agriculture, has been campaigning for his Presidential bid come 2022.
His ambitions has however been dealt with a blow after the Star Newspaper reported that Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has already offered a tender for printing of 20 million ballot papers. This is seen by political pundits as a move gearing towards referendum.
The IEBC chair, Wafula Chebukati, offered provision of the ballot papers to local firm on tender number IEBC/DP/02/2019-2021. The company involved is De la Rue and Export Processing Zones (EPZ).
The tender however received a response from Kenya Literature Bureau, Hills Converter(K), Sintel Security Solution Ltd and Ellams Products. None of these qualified for mandatory technical evaluation and therefore De la Rue was given a go ahead.
The printing will cost Sh397.4 million according to the documents seen by The Star.
