Kenyan Firm Blacklisted by African Development Bank Over Fraud

Nairobi, Kenya | THE BLACK EXAMINER | – Joycot General Contractors Limited has been sanctioned by the African Development Bank (AfDB) for its involvement in fraudulent activities. As a result, the construction company is prohibited from conducting any business with the pan-African lender for a duration of 15 months starting from September 8, 2023.

Following an investigation by AfDB’s Office of Integrity and Anti-Corruption, it was determined that Joycot General Contractors Limited had engaged in fraudulent practices while participating in a tender for the construction of reticulation sewers in Kahawa West and Kahawa Sukari, which is a crucial component of the Nairobi Rivers Basin Rehabilitation and Restoration Programme: Sewerage Improvement Project Phase II in Kenya.

The primary goal of the Nairobi Rivers Basin Rehabilitation and Restoration Programme, Sewerage Improvement Project Phase II, was to enhance the accessibility, quality, availability, and sustainability of wastewater services within Nairobi City.

AfDB stated in a press release, “During the period of debarment, Joycot General Contractors Ltd. will be ineligible to partake in any Bank Group-financed activities. Once the debarment period concludes, Joycot General Contractors Ltd. will only be eligible to resume participation in African Development Bank Group-financed activities after successfully implementing an integrity compliance program that aligns with the Bank’s established guidelines.
