|The tender document|
Kenyans are still puzzled by Office of the president’s move to advertise tenders to airlift presidential Speeches as they fathom high cost of living and burgeoning wage bill.
In a local daily, the country’s ministry of Interior coordination floated a tender with an attached bid bond valued at Sh 500,000.
The bid bond simply means failure to deliver the speeches the state will receive the amount from supplier’s insurance provider.
However, more questions still linger in heads of many, why the Digital government as it has come to be known is sourcing for an independent supplier instead of using secure means.
Director of Digital Communication in the Office of the President of the Republic of Kenya, Dennis Ole Itumibi shortly updated his twitter handle.
“I hold the strong opinion that in a digital age we have no business flying speeches. Jubilee believes in the digital space,” he wrote.
Further, he added “For now the speeches have to be flown since we have no alternative, but equal creativity will be invested in developing a secure portal.”
