Kitui County Assembly is on the spot over a tender ad that sought suppliers for beers, wines, spirits and cigarettes.

According to sources within, the tender was advertised without the knowledge of most Memebrs of the County Assembly (MCAs).

The leader of majority in the Assembly Peter Kilonzo alias Tangawizi,  who spoke to a local publication denied knowledge of the said ad.

Instead, he said he learnt of the news through media, and his efforts to get more information from the clerk bore no fruits as the clerk did not pick his calls.

He further divulged that the supply could be for the Senate Mashinani forums which will be held in Kitui in September, but did not commit to it.

The ad said that the supplies would cover the period between 2019 to 2020.

Other items that have been advertised include dry cleaning services, fresh flower arrangement services, gardening, hotel services within and without Kitui County among others.

Here’s the ad
