The Kenyan High Court has ruled that a plan by the Kenyan Ports Authority (KPA) to award a licence to Portside Freight Terminals to build a second bulk grain handling facility at the Port of Mombasa has broken tendering procedures and must not go ahead.

The court argued that the KPA and National Treasury failed to adhere to a fair, open, and transparent tendering process in awarding the licence to build at the busy port.

“It is evidently clear that KPA and National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani have employed the use of specially permitted procurement procedure to avoid the competition of bidder and is being applied in favour of Portside,” said High Court Judge Reuben Nyakundi.
