‘Don’t manipulate tender floated by Awqaf Ministry’ Municipal Council member issues warning

KUWAIT CITY, April 21: Member of the Municipal Council, Lawyer Abdullah Al- Kandari, warned on manipulating the tender floated by Ministry of Awqaf to distribute Ramadan meals in the Grand Mosque and the preconditions of companies presenting their bid to distribute Ramadan meals, with the holy month of Ramadan fast approaching, reports Al- Rai daily. He confirmed receiving a tip-off that one of the companies bidding for the tender had been punished earlier after a huge quantity of expired food was found inside its main kitchen, indicating the company in question had been awarded tender to distribute Ramadan meals for two years consecutively after renewing its license and the issue raises suspicions. He wondered if there is a relationship between a committee member and the company.

Meanwhile, he stressed that meals distributed during Ramadan are manipulated by some companies in cooperation with a few ministry officials to the detriment of the health of the people who are taking the meals. He suggested forming an inquiry committee with representatives from the Municipality, Ministry of Commerce, the Municipal Council and Ministry of Awqaf to study the files of bidding companies and the means of disbursing funds to ensure that the concerned company performs its task as expected.
