Mandera Airport cleared to begin construction

Posted 19 July 2016 · Add Comment

The Kenyan High Court has cleared the construction of an airport in Mandera at Sh608 million (USD5.9 million).

The Star has reported that the clearance comes as one of the bidders Alwahab Enterprises Ltd, challenging the award of the contract to Seo and Sons Ltd, withdrew its appeal, as it was no longer interested in challenging the Kenya Airports Authority’s decision.
 
The contract was subsequently awarded to Seo and Sons, despite KAA originally picking Alwahab as the winning bidder, prompting Alwahab to move to the High Court.
 
Justice George Odunga ruled: “Even if the applicant was to succeed, it would not be in a position, on its own, to secure the tender in the same manner as it had tendered for, unless the circumstances relating to its application were to be materially altered.”
 
With this result, Seo and Sons can now begin construction on the new airport.
