Kibaki-Raila Conflict⚔ Caused Sh4.3bn JKIA✈ Project Loss

The frosty relationship between the ODM and PNU wings of the Grand Coalition government has put Kenyans at risk of losing Sh4.3 billion in a stalled JKIA project.
Fresh details emerged on Tuesday of how miscommunication among senior officials in President Mwai Kibaki’s Cabinet exposed Kenyans to the loss involving the Greenfield Terminal.
The loss followed the termination of the Sh64 billion tender awarded to two Chinese firms — Anhui Construction Engineering Group and China Aero-Technology International Engineering Corporation — to construct the Greenfield Terminal.
Members of the National Assembly’s Public Investments Committee have summoned governors Francis Kimemia of Nyandarua and Embu’s Martin Wambora to shed light on the problem.
Wambora was Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) chairman at that time.
Kimemia issued communication contradicting the board’s position that the project be cancelled.
The committee chaired by Mvita MP Abdulswamad Nassir warned that taxpayers may lose more money should the contractor seek damages following the terminated tender.
