Speaking on Sunday in Malindi, Mr Duale noted that Odinga was a close ally to the owners of the company contracted to provide elections management systems to the electoral body.

The Garissa Township MP demanded the former Prime Minister to come clean over the controversial single-sourcing of Safran highlighting that Odinga ‘knows almost everything about the company, including how it first won another tender by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in 2013’.

“We know those behind Safran. They are people very close to Odinga allies and we want to tell the IEBC that we are watching them,” Duale was quoted by the Nation.

However, Suna East MP Junet Mohamed rubbished Duale’s claims and welcomed the move by IEBC to award the tender to Safran.

This comes days after IEBC announced that it had cancelled a previous tender awarded to another French firm, Gemalto SA and awarded it to Safran.

Defending the move, IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati mentioned that Gemalto SA had quoted Sh5.2 billion against the available budget of Sh3.8 billion, which Safran was able to meet.
