DP world Non-Bidding Construction projects corruption scandal in Berbera (By: Ahmed Ali Abdi)


Do #Djibouti allegation to DP world misconduct was absolutely right?

“Do DP world has a license to corrupt Somaliland constitutional and institutional legal rights?

The Dp world is severely violated of Somaliland Tender Board policy and constitutional rights, according to Somaliland Tender Act. Awarding construction contract without respecting Somaliland Tender policy plans, procedures and universal tender standard procedures. This is an act of corruption, scam, and hoax. This DP world move creates chaos, confusion, and tension among Somaliland Construction Companies.

DP world awkward awarding the Daryeel company projects estimated $5 million contracts including Berbera five star hotel, Dp world employees housing, warehouses  and much more, by

Trespassing and disrespecting Somaliland constitutional and institutional rights. The initial face of Dp world was unwelcomed in Somaliland law makers and public in general.

Furthermore, after we contacted the Daryeel construction company General Manager and marketing manager, Mr. Abdirashid and Mr. Awil respectively. we as the ed same question. How do you receive the construction contracted from the DP world without competition based on the tender? Both gentlemen respond as same, that they exercise their leverage through Somaliland Ambassador in U.A.E  Mr. Bashe Awil , Mayor of Berbera  Mr. A/shakur “Dicin”. As well as chairman of Somaliland chamber of commerce and shareholder of Daryeel Construction were facilitated to receive the project without bidding. We also visited the Daryeel constructing sites, most of the employee were Ethiopia. I asked the Daryeel marketing manager,” did you recruited from Hargeisa or Ethiopia (oromo) ?. He told me they were recruited from Hargiesa, and good at work when they compare to Berbera nationals or Somalilanders, and cheap labour and cost effective as well.

However, Berbera local government internal policy says that; what Berbera local construction companies can cover should not be given non local construction companies.

Without a reasonable doubt, Somaliland best tax payers are construction companies, according

Somaliland ministry of finance annual best payers record. But, they did not receive the respect, justice they deserve .in return discrimination, immoral and inequality from the current administration bids.

Do Dp world have license to corrupt Somaliland constitutional and institutional legal rights? Leave a question.

Lastly, as procurement experts we did express our concerns and recommends to legally reviewing and right by tendering before it is too late. If ignoring to bid contract, it will have domestic and international consequences. Today we believe the Djibouti allegation to DP world misconduct is now visible in Somaliland.
