Details emerging indicate that government’s drone emergency medical supply project which is due to commence in 2019 has been awarded to a foreign company by name Zipline International Inc. at a cost of 12 Million Dollars.

Documents to that effect from the Public Procurement Authority, the Office of the President and the National Security Council Secretariat all attest to the fact that the contract was awarded based on sole sourcing.

The Public Procurement Authority Board has therefore given the green light for the Ministry of Health to award the contract to the company which is of United States of America origin.

The Office of the president wrote to the Public Procurement Authority for permission to award the contract on the basis of sole-sourcing, a request which was initially rejected based on some adverse findings, but approved later when the board of the Authority felt the necessary procedures has been followed.

The National Security Council Secretariat also wrote testifying to the genuineness of the company, citing the fact that it was the same company that Rwanda contracted to embark on their emergency drone medical supply services.
