  1. This article is spot on. As a good example is the investigation into the Security Surveillance Project. The Parliamentary Committee and indeed the PPOA were in agreement that the award to Safaricom was in order. The only reason given by some members of the Parliamentary Committee is that direct procurement is risky as it could lead to irregularities (but they do not say that this is the case with the Security Surveillance procurement). MCAs on the other hand have sworn to ignore Cheserems ceiling of expenditure, claiming that 50 per cent of money allocated to counties goes to pay salaries for the MCAs! Something is terribly wrong with the Constitution that we passed or with it’s application!!! We are going downwards because we have allowed the leaders we put in office to block development meant to uplift our standards of living. Poor Kenyans, when shall we wake up and take back our country from these greedy hooligans. Waikenda is right, the main issue is the leaders are trying to find ways to “eat” because the system in place has blocked them from enriching themselves.

  2. You are on point. If the MPs think that the PPOA was not effective or not fair, then they should strengthen the organisation or disband it and create a new one that will be more effective and fair. It does not make sense for this Authority to be paid using taxpayers money then their work and input is disregarded by a parliamentary committee also paid using tax payers money. The extreme alternative is to disband PPOA and transfer it’s mandate to Parliamentarians….I’m sure they would love that as it comes with endless rent seeking opportunities!

  3. Apart from making money through sitting allowances and traveling abroad to places such as SA and India, the aim of all those summons during the hearings is to let suppliers know that they have the power to stop the deal altogether and that they had better pay them some attention if they want the deal to go through or it gets scrapped.

    When out of public sight and at places such as private parties or golf clubs, money will change hands through third parties and then all of a sudden the project has received a clean bill of health to proceed!!
