Director of Public Prosecution -DPP Noordin Haji has approved the prosecution of former Kenya Ports Authority MD Daniel Manduku.

In a statement Haji said Manduku should be prosecuted after a reviewing of evidence against the accused.

DPP pointed out that Manduku ought to face prosecution over irregular procurement of works at the port.

He said that his office established that Manduku approved and authorized the procurement of the manufacturing of concrete barriers at the inland container depot at Kilindini port and Makongeni goods shed without an approved budget and procurement plan for the 2018-2019 financial year.

Also, the DPP accused Manduku of executing a tender for the concrete barriers through the bill of quantities as opposed to open tendering which flouted of procurement law.

He is also accused of approving overpayment of over 244 million shillings to the contractor for the works not completed.
