Kenya: Disagreement erupts over Sh30 billion oil pipeline loan

Published

on

Mystery surrounds a Sh30 billion commercial loan for a security system to guard a proposed crude oil pipeline after the Energy ministry confirmed it had been signed while the National Treasury disowned it following enquiries by the newsmen.



Treasury Principal Secretary Kamau Thugge said he was not aware of such a loan despite the Energy ministry, which signed the agreement early last year, maintaining that the contract had been submitted to his office.

Mr Thugge’s position that there was no such loan negotiation deepens the questionable circumstances under which government officials purportedly committed to borrow such a colossal sum of money for security years before the design of the proposed pipeline from the Turkana oilfields to the Lamu Port is submitted.

According to the seen copy of the commercial contract signed between Rafael Advanced Defence Systems Ltd, an Israeli security systems manufacturer, and then Ministry of Energy and Petroleum under Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter on February 15, 2017 at Nyayo House, Nairobi.

The Petroleum docket has since been moved to the Mining ministry headed by Cabinet Secretary John Munyes.

Petroleum Principal Secretary Andrew Kamau, who signed the contract on behalf of the Kenyan government, did not deny its existence but said it was still being finalised by the Treasury.

Mr Kamau defended the “early negotiations” for the loan long before Kenya’s crude pipeline specifics have been consolidated.

“Yes, the process is at Treasury. We already know the pipeline is 821 kilometres and how many pump stations will be there so there should be nothing wrong with planning its security. Don’t forget the loan is also for the security system for the existing pipeline,” Mr Kamau said.
