Three traders were last week charged over a Sh591 million laptop tender scam in the Ministry of Devolution.

The three denied before a Milimani Law Courts magistrate Daniel Ndungi that they obtained fraudulently Sh62,950,000 from John Ogas Omondi on pretext of awarding his company, Hopeland Advertising and Design Limited a tender to supply Sh94,250,000 laptops to the ministry.

The trio denied defrauding Ms Eunice Gakinya Sh12 million, claiming they would award her company — Evaton General Supplies — a tender to supply Sh82,650,000 laptops to the ministry.

On August 10, 2018 they denied obtaining Sh10 million from Mr Omondi claiming they would award his company a tender to supply laptops worth Sh82,650,000.

Mr Imbaya was separately charged with three counts of defrauding Mr Omondi Sh34.5 million pretending he would award his company a tender to supply of laptops to the ministry.
