How Nairobi County Government Officials Inflated Dandora Stadium Cost By Sh. 100M

0 1,538

Procurement  officials in Nairobi City County are now in  trouble for inflating Dandora Stadium cost by sh. 100 million in what is seen as well choreographed scheme to defraud the county government.

In another leaked  audio, Nairobi Governor Mike  Sonko is heard  questioning Mr. Leonard Biwott who was an acting director by then why they inflated the tender by   sh. 100 million contrary to the original contract  of sh. 250 million.

The revelation was first  made when the procurement officers  presented sh.350 million cost of the stadium to  social services committee at the assembly raising an eye  brow.

Committee chairman who is also Woodley/Kenyatta MCA  Mwangi Njihia then took the same controversial documents to Sonko and drove his attention into the matter.

‘‘What the chairman  said is the truth,  this what these people of procurement do as we sit  back as fools …they perpetrate the same on roads tenders, and thereafter audit queries arise……we are asked to give  answers on what we don’t even know.’’ Sonko is heard lamenting in the leaked audio.

At some point Sonko  called the then acting county secretary Pauline Kahiga to get her side over the matter.

Kahiga is also heard saying that she was not aware of the inflation.

The governor has however,  ordered quick intervention of the investigators into the matter, saying  the move was to implicate him in the scandal  and also sabotage the Dandora Stadium Project.

Meanwhile  plans to have the stadium complete are underway and is expected to be officially  opened before the year ends.
