MOYO district chairman Peter Iku Dolo has stopped the opening of the district bids for 2005/6 tender awards, leaving over sh300m unused, writes Dradenya Amazia.
In a letter dated October 17, to the chief administrative officer Julius Odongkara, Dolo said it was illegal to open the bids for prequalification, adding that it would backfire on the district. He said if not stopped, he would not be held responsible in case of queries.
â€œPlease stop the exercise tomorrow, Tuesday October 18, as it is illegal,â€ Doloâ€™s letter read.
This follows wrangles among district leaders over supremacy in approving the district tender board members, who are to open bids for prequalification.
The district council last month resolved to use the urban tender board members in the meantime.
