Former NITA Director General Charged with Abuse of Office

by Robert Guyana

The Former National Industrial Training Authority (NITA) Director General Paul Kipsang Kosgei has been charged with abuse of office in a tender scam case, two days after his successor was charged with a similar offence.

Kosgei was arraigned at the Milimani Anti-Corruption court, where he faced charges of conferring a benefit of Ksh.5.3 to Xponics Limited by authorizing payments to the company in respect of the tender for the supply, delivery, installation, commissioning, training, service, maintenance and repair of sewing and training machines.

According to the prosecution, the accused allegedly committed the said offence between January 31 and March 29, 2019 while he was still the managing director at NITA.

The former MD pleaded not guilty to the charge before Principal Magistrate Zipporah Gichana and was granted a Ksh.3 million bond with an alternative cash bail of Ksh 1 million.
