New multi-million scandal unearthed at KPLC

Another scandal!

In the scandal, KPLC employees are accused of registering companies to award themselves contracts and sneaking in unqualified companies into the KPLC database.

According to Citizen TV, an internal audit seen by the station revealed that KPLC registered 525 firms and only 345 with fake documents were short listed for contacts.

The report also put seven supervisors on the spot for allegedly receiving bribes from contactors; Ziporrah Bora, a supervisor in Kiambu, allegedly received Sh729, 000 in bribes from four directors. Daniel Basweti, a project officer in Nakuru also allegedly received Sh677, 000 from two contractors and a staff member.

The internal audit is said to have named seven other employees listed in the pre-qualified labour and transport companies.

The auditors recommended disciplinary action against all employees involved in the scandal and also called for susupension of contracts and removal of the 345 illegally listed companies.
