Former Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) CEO Halakhe Waqo is set to appear before the Public Investments Committee (PIC) over his alleged connection with an irregular Kemsa tender.

Mr Wako was named by Assure Commercial Services Limited director, Zubeda Nyamlondo, as a loan guarantor from First Community Bank.

It was after the furniture supplies company secured a Sh347 million tender with the government agency that Mr Wako who is currently the chairman of the universities fund board, helped unlock funding for the local purchase order (LPO).

He is said to have assisted Assure Commercial Services with Sh200million from the lender.

“The bank needed security to give us the huge amount of money we requested. Waqo gave us the assurance and we included him as a director.

“The bank needed security or assurance. Waqo came on board as a surety and I wrote a letter introducing him as a signatory. The letter was to provide for three people to sign the loan,” Nyamlondo told the Mvita MP Abdulswamad Nassir-led committee.
