Tender –Nation Media Group management has today sought an explanation from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC over tender breach.
In a demand letter seen by the media on Wednesday July 27 morning, NMG had accused the IEBC of going against the tender award which required the body to consider it due to its population reach.
The letter addressed to Chief Executive Officer CEO Marjan Hussein Marjan questioned why the commission had chosen to take the tender to publication with a weaker reach.
Nation Media Group General Manager, James Sogoti, wrote to the IEBC asking to know why it had chosen to publish the 140-page party nominations list in a rival paper with very insignificant readership as compared to the Nation paper which has all along been attracting a steady following across the board.
This is in reference to the tender award dated July 29, 2021, which Sogoti indicated that the electoral body had deliberately went against their corporate engagement by considering to work with a somewhat low-ranking newspaper in the country.
“The list has been published in the lowest circulating dailies in Kenya. NMG considers this not only an unfair business practice and a breach of good corporate governance by IEBC,” the NMG letter read in part.
In the letter, the Kimathi Street-based media house bragged that statistics clearly puts them far above any other media house in the country and that cannot be contested
It is currently the top most publication locally and which has a wide and far readership both in and outside.
Nation Media therefore demanded a substantial explanation as to why it was not treated fairly on this.
