The Government, through the National Assembly’s Transport, Public Works and Housing Committee, has recieved names of 14 firms awarded road construction works, but had not delivered as promised.
Topping the list, Gipsy company which was awarded the Kutus-Kianyaga Road and the St Joseph-Ol-Kalou Road upgrades, Kitho Construction which was awarded a contract to construct the Matuu-Ekalakala Road while Civicon got the tender for the Kati-Kikima-Nduluku Road and Omoringamu-Kenynya-Motonto Road.
Others on the list;
Dickways Construction – Kirwara-Kigio-Blue Post Road,
Bonafide Construction Company – Tumaini-Wakiongo Road
Frontier Construction – Lodwar-Loreningipi Road.
Northern Construction Company – Coca Cola-Kithaku Road,
Anole Construction in Meru
Westbuild Construction – Marimanti-Chiakariga-Gatonga Road
Pepeta holdings Limited – Matemorabu-Suba-Kuria-Masaba Road, Nairobi Logistics – Kadel-Alara-Kanyadhiang Road in Homa Bay
Bridgestone Construction Limited, which had been tasked with the construction of the Ekwanda-Luanda-Magada Road.
Nyoro construction – Kenol-Ngoleni-Kaani Road
Modogashe Construction – Isiolo town roads.
The chair of the committee, Mr Pkosing regretted that the non-performing contractors delayed the government’s plan of achieving its target of constructing 10,000km roads.
He said they should, therefore, be barred from bagging other tenders.
“We are contemplating having an amendment to the Procurement and Disposal Act to bar such companies or other companies having similar or same directors from getting any other works,” – Said Pokot South MP, Mr David Pkosing
