Kenyan cement group reissues clinker tender
Published: 01 February 2008

Kenya’s East Africa Portland Cement Company (EAPCC) has, for the fourth time in the past three years, put out a tender for the supply of clinker.

Past attempts had to be cancelled at the last minute owing to alleged irregularities. This led to the sacking of MD Zakayo Ole Mapelu and also forced the company to issue a profit warning for the 2007 financial year.

EAPCC acting MD Ndegwa Kagio says the company is inviting interested and eligible firms to supply approximately 450,000t of clinker for a period of three years, from July 2008 to June 2011.

He adds that eligible tenderers must have a clinker production capacity of at least 300,000tpa.

Tenderers are required to submit a bid bond equivalent to 2% of the tender bid value that should remain valid for 120 days.
