Kenya's proposed $418 million purchase of a dozen armed border-patrol aircraft and related items from a US manufacturer “fails the smell test,” says anti-corruption campaigner John Githongo.
Mr. Githongo suggests that the pending deal with New York-based L3 Technologies could involve corruption on the part of Kenyan officials.
He notes that a different US company has indicated it could supply Kenya with the missile-bearing and intelligence-gathering planes for about $130 million less than the price L3 is said to be charging.
This apparent discrepancy exhibits “stark similarities to corruption scandals” in other cases involving Kenya's security sector, Mr. Githongo argues.
He adds, however, that he has no evidence to support suspicions of graft in this instance.
