Kenyan Taxpayers May Have Lost Billions in Pipeline Tender

Taxpayers may have lost Sh40 billion in a project to build a new 450-kilometre fuel pipeline between Mombasa and Nairobi. The pipeline was originally to be upgraded to 16 inches - but whistleblowers say  the company took a kickback-driven decision to throw everything away and buy a 20-inch pipeline instead. The company has denied the claims.
