DPP To Appeal NYS Officials’ Acquittal In Irregular Tender Case

The DPP will appeal the acquittal of 23 NYS officials who were charged with irregular award of Sh47.6 million to a contractor.

“ODPP will appeal acquittal of some of the NYS officials charged with various procurement offences in relation to the irregular award.”

Chief magistrate Kenneth Bidali said on Friday that the prosecution failed to prove its case against the lot beyond reasonable doubt.

Bidali added that the prosecution did not give enough evidence to show the suspects committed fraud.

They are said to have conspired to commit an economic crime between December 16, 2014 and September 28, 2015 in Nairobi county.

They allegedly made a payment of Sh47.6 million to Blue Star Enterprises for the supply of training materials which were irregularly tendered.
