Governor Wilber Ottichilo’s flagship project of construction of an ultramodern mortuary for Vihiga County’s dead has been dealt a blow after the building collapsed killing one and injuring several workers that were on site.
The multi-million mortuary was launched a few months ago and it was being built at a supersonic speed, at least for the ODM GOVERNOR to open it as his foremost project in the region, but it has now gone down.
Procurement officer a well known ODM wheeler ,tendering department led by ODM hanging are the people involved in the COLLAPSED building and are said to be the most corrupt fellows north of Limpopo, south of Sahara.
Governor Wilber Ottichilo’s flagship project collapsed killing one and injuring several workers that were on site.
The multi-million mortuary was launched a few months ago and it was being built at a supersonic speed, at least for Ottichilo to open it as his foremost project in the region, but it has now gone down.
Two days ago, Daily Express ran a story on how Ottichilo was so keen on rushing the construction of the mortuary, despite the health department being faced with a myriad of challenges, including lack of food in the county referral hospital.
Sources from the ground say that the contractor was forced to part with Sh35 million, out of the Sh45 million allocated for the construction, that he had no option than to do the shoddy work, that has resulted in it collapsing.
There is no signboard detailing who is the contractor or who is supervising the works.
The contractor knew by constructing a sub standard building, even if it collapses one day, it will collapse on already dead people.
The 100 capacity mortuary was to be constructed in a record six months, finishing in May.
Workers have been trapped in the collapsed building for over 3 hours.
The level of compromise on awarding of tenders can be seen clear from these dates (shown in advert below). Flouting the public procurement law on the period between opening, evaluation, notification, awarding, complaints period then commissioning the works.
The ANC PARTY must provide sober leadership to Vihiga county which is home PL MUSALIA MUDAVADI.
Proper political engineering must be undertaken by anc to save Vihiga county from the continuous looting by ODM gangstas.
