Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has summoned Nairobi county Chief Finance officer Halkano Waqo over irregular tendering process of food supplied at Cityhall.

In a letter EACC Waqo was to appear before the anti corruption watchdog this morning at Integrity Centre for grilling.

“The commission is undertaking investigations into allegation of irregular award of tenders by Nairobi City County Government for supply and delivery of food and non-food items for disaster emergencies to mitigate the effects of Covid 19 pandemic to 127,500 households in informal settlements within the Nairobi County…To facilitate our investigation, kindly inform Mr. Halkano Diida Waqo Chief Officer Finance to avail himself at Integrity Centre, on 30th June 2021 at 9am for interview and statement recording on the matter,” the letter reads.

Makongeni MCA Peter Imwatok wrote to EACC claiming the supply and payment of food was illegal and could see millions of shillings lost.

“It is absurd that the taxpayers’ money amounting to millions shall be paid to companies belonging to Members of County Assembly or their proxies for services or goods that were never supplied,” Imwatok said.

The letter also indicated that Tsuma Trading Company Limited was paid Sh82.6 million, Flexilease Limited (Sh89 million), Msafiri Feeds Limited (Sh39million) and Throughout General Supplies Limited (Sh17.7 million, Asmara Ventures Limited (Sh27million) Capital Waste Management Limited (Sh10million) and Daasanach Construction Limited (Sh9million).
