Somalilandsun-The Dp world is severely violated of Somaliland Tender Board policy and constitutional rights, accordingSomaliland Tender Act. Awarding construction contract without respecting Somaliland Tender policyplans, procedures and universal tender standard procedures. This is act of corruption, scam and hoax.This DP world move creates chaos, confusion and tension among Somaliland Construction Companies.
DP world awkward a warding the Daryeel company a projects estimated $5 million contractsincluding Berberafive star hotel , Dp world employees housing, warehouses and much more, by
Trespassing and disrespecting Somaliland constitutional and institutional rights. The initial face of Dpworld were unwelcomed in Somaliland law makers and public in general.
Furthermore, after we contacted the Daryeel construction company General Manager and marketingmanager, Mr. A/Rashid and Mr. Awil respectively .we asked same question. How do you receive theconstruction contracted from the DP world without competition based on tender? Both gentlemenrespond as same, that they exercise their leverage through Somaliland Ambassador in U.A.E Mr. BasheAwil , Mayor of BerberaMr. A/shakur “Dicin”.Aswell as chairman of Somaliland chamber of commerce and shareholder of Daryeel Construction were facilitated to receive theproject without bidding.We also visited the Daryeel constructing sites, most of employee were Ethiopia. I asked the Daryeelmarketing manager,” did yourecruited from Hargeisa or Ethiopia(oromo) ?. He told me they were recruited fromHargiesa, and good at work when they compare to Berbera nationals or Somalilanders, andcheap labour and costeffective as well.
However, Berbera local government internal policy says that ;whatBerbera 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 payersrecord. 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 aquestion.
Lastly, as procurement experts we did express our concerns and recommends to legally reviewing andright by tendering before it is too late. If ignoring to bid contract, it will have domestic and internationalconsequences. Today we believe the Djibouti allegation to DP world misconduct is now visible inSomaliland.
