Fraud: AfDB debars Global Interjapan Kenya - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news! 

The African Development Bank Group (AfDB.org) has debarred the Global Interjapan (Kenya) Limited for 36 months for fraudulent practices, reports 
ITREALMS.
The company, ITREALMS gathered, had engaged in fraudulent practices during a tender for the Bank-financed Small Scale Irrigation and Value Addition Project held in Kenya.


The debarment of the Kenyan-based civil engineering company, Global Interjapan Limited, ITREALMS gathered, took effect from 24 August 2020.

The debarment follows conclusion of an investigation conducted by the Bank’s Office of Integrity and Anti-Corruption which established that Global Interjapan (Kenya) Limited engaged in fraudulent practices during a tender for the bank-financed Small Scale Irrigation and Value Addition Project in Kenya.

The debarment renders Global Interjapan (Kenya) Limited and its affiliates ineligible to participate in Bank Group-financed projects during the debarment period. 

Additionally, ITREALMS gathered, the debarment qualifies for cross-debarment by other multilateral development banks under the Agreement for Mutual Enforcement of Debarment Decisions, including the Asian Development Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Inter-American Development Bank and the World Bank Group.

At the expiry of the debarment period, Global Interjapan (Kenya) Limited with office at the 
ground floor, Parsonic Building, Kirinyaga Road, Nairobi City,  will only be eligible to participate in Bank Group-financed projects on condition that it implements an integrity compliance program consistent with the Bank’s guidelines.

The Small Scale Irrigation and Value Addition Project aimed at reducing poverty by enhancing agricultural productivity, income and food security among the residents of 11 counties in Kenya, and was co-financed by the African Development Bank, a constituent entity of the African Development Bank Group.
