Kenya played host to the three-day 10th WTO Min­is­te­rial Con­fer­ence held at the KICC from December 15-18 last year. How­ever, the pro­cure­ment process was marred by in­fight­ing and then KICC man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Fred Simiyu was dra­mat­i­cally kicked out. On Tues­day, a cau­cus of WTO sup­pli­ers told a par­lia­men­tary com­mit­tee ef­forts to get pay­ment have proved fu­tile. Cau­cus chair­man John Ibae said, “There is no rea­son the coun­try should cel­e­brate and brag about a suc­cess­ful con­fer­ence yet the chil­dren of sup­pli­ers are go­ing with­out food.” The EACC has launched in­ves­ti­ga­tions into al­leged ir­reg­u­lar pro­cure­ment.
