The two Governors are expected to shed more light on how the Grand Coalition Government frosty relationship has put the country at risk of losing 4.3 Billion of JKIA stalled project.

Fresh details emerged on Tuesday of how miscommunication among senior officials in President Mwai Kibaki’s Cabinet exposed Kenyans to the loss involving the Greenfield Terminal.

The loss followed the termination of the Sh64 billion tender awarded to two Chinese firms — Anhui Construction Engineering Group and China Aero-Technology International Engineering Corporation — to construct the Greenfield Terminal.

The terminal construction project was cancelled in March 2016 by Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia, citing non-viability. Grass has overgrown the site.
