The committee also expressed concern with the implementation of the deal saying it was done in a manner that violated the Constitution and principles that the project was originally conceived under. The report however fails to name those who were directly involved in the alleged irregularities. The Managed Equipment Service was launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta in February 2015. County Governments now remit Ksh 200 million every year up from 95 million in 2014 when the equipment was first supplied. A report tabled before the senate by the ad hoc committee probing the controversial Ksh 63 billion Managed Equipment Service (MES) deal now wants EACC to investigate people behind it terming it a fraud. The ad Hoc committee chaired by Isiolo Senator Fatuma Dullo and deputized by Bungoma’s Moses Wetangula has been investigating the matter for a year. According to the committee, the deal was shrouded in opaque procurement processes aimed at benefiting a few commercial interests. The investigations of the committee, also reveal that some equipment in the Managed Equipment Service project were either overpriced, substandard, delivered late, or undelivered at all.

After ending last season on such a high note, the University of Wisconsin’s men’s soccer team is coming into this season with the utmost confidence.The team ended the 2017 season 12-5-5, the best record they have had in years. Winning the Big Ten Tournament against Indiana in a penalty kick showdown near the end of the season left the players satisfied as they move forward to train this spring.Reaching the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament was another big accomplishment for the men’s team. Beating a team like No. 12 Notre Dame in the second round was extremely exciting for the Badgers as they hadn’t even participated in the tournament since 2013.The team was so sought after last season that four of our key members were drafted into Major League Soccer (MLS). Two players, Chris Mueller and Mark Segbers, were chosen in the Top 10 of the MLS draft, a huge deal for Wisconsin athletics. While this looks positive for the school and athletic department, it leaves a ton of weight on the shoulders of the returning players.Men’s golf: Six Badgers will play in Colleton River CollegiateSix golfers from the University of Wisconsin men’s golf team will compete in Bluffton, South Carolina on the Colleton River Read…Head coach John Trask, who was inducted into the Wisconsin Soccer Hall of Fame last week, gave us the inside scoop on how the players have been preparing for the upcoming season.“The guys have been working very hard this spring, both with our strength and conditioning staff and our soccer staff. We just finished the first of five spring contests with a good hard fought result (3-3) against UWGB who won the Horizon League regular season,” he said. “We improved during the match and many younger players gained valuable experience — which is the key during the spring.”The games played during the spring are just a sneak peak of the action we will get this fall.Because the team played so well last year, the players are hoping to prove themselves again this season. They want to come back from the off-season raring to go, with some new fresh faces added to the mix.The first few games will be non-conference matches, leading up to the first Big Ten game against Indiana. This game is crucial after winning against the Hoosiers last season down to the wire, as well as for the rest of the Big Ten season.There are some players Trask said we should keep our eyes on.“While losing some exceptional talent, some returning guys, like senior captain Isaac Schlenker, Robin Olofsson Elan Koenig will be counted on to lead the team this coming fall,” he said. “The partnership of Mitch Guitar and Noah Leibold gives us dominant center midfield and … quite a bit of experience in the back half.”It seems as though the coaching staff is ready to tackle the season with both seniors and newbies on the field. With the leadership of the older players and the enthusiasm of the younger ones, the team is ready to take the NCAA by storm.Men’s hockey: Wisconsin season comes to end after disappointing loss to MichiganThe University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team (14-19-4, 8-13-3 Big Ten) dropped the first two games 5-6 and 4-7 in Read…While some might worry that this is going to be a rebuilding season for the Badgers, Coach Trask is sure the 2017 season left them wanting more. The 2018 season is a season of “reloading” rather than rebuilding for Wisconsin, and is the perfect opportunity to show the rest of the country what they’ve got.The next spring game to catch will be versus University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee April 8 at the McClimon Complex. The Milwaukee Panthers ended last season 10-5-4, so the Badgers hope to defeat them in their next home match-up.After a remarkable 2017 season, the Badgers are back and stronger than ever. They are ready to take on their next four exhibition games this spring, after having time to rest and prepare. With months of off-season training, the players are determined to make this year as memorable as last.
Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum That education, naturally, also has occurred in practice, where professional pick-setting artist Marcin Gortat roams.“I’ve gotten tagged multiple times (by Gortat),” Robinson said, with a laugh. “I’ve had to stop for a second and hold my rib. So it’s been fun.”45 DAYS, NO TRAVELINGLast February, a mix-up with a car service in San Francisco caused Clippers guard Tyrone Wallace – then a two-way contract player bouncing between the G-League and the league – to miss shootaround, which cost him an opportunity to start.He’d flown in on game day because players on two-way contracts were allowed no more than 45 days with an NBA team last season, and travel days counted against that total.This season, the NBA will revise that “days of service” rule so travel days don’t start the clock on that 45-day limit.“A year late!” Wallace said before practice Sunday. “That should’ve been in there last year.”Related Articles For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates PLAYA VISTA — Sure, Clippers coach Doc Rivers will tell you his team has significant filing and whittling still to do before the regular season begins Wednesday (not to mention a pair of roster cuts to make before 2 p.m. on Monday).Nonetheless, the 20th-year coach had to admit these Clippers – a combination of “new parts and new people, or old people who are new because they didn’t play last year” – have been quick to pick up plays.“We don’t have a lot (left) to put in, which is interesting,” Rivers said. “I don’t think I’ve said that before. There’s all sorts of things we’re going to put in as the year goes on … but we have a lot of stuff in already. This has been a very quick-learning team.”Rivers gave extra credit to rookie guards Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jerome Robinson, who are adapting in a hurry. Wallace missed that start at Golden State, but he was so impressive in his 30 appearances last season – averaging 9.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists for an injury-depleted team that desperately needed backup contributions to stay afloat – that the Clippers matched the New Orleans Pelicans’ two-year, $3 million offer sheet for him in September.“(The change) is good for the players,” added Wallace, who averaged 6.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in four active preseason appearances. “You’re not gonna have all these funky travel schedules and same-day flights, so I think it benefits the two-way players. It’s great to leave when the team leaves and take the team plane instead of having to do all that extra stuff.”“What we were doing last year, it was crazy,” Rivers said recently. “To think that we were flying guys in on the day of the game and starting them on the day of the game. It’s funny, what it did for me. As a coach you’re never patient enough, but Ty’s on the floor and I’m inside having a war, ‘Why did he miss that rotation?’“And then your other brain tells you, ‘Probably because he wasn’t at shootaround because he was in a car coming from the wrong arena because we switched shootarounds and he didn’t know.’ A veteran would have struggled in that situation.”MBAH A MOUTE, TEODOSIC TO PLAYAfter battling respective calf and hamstring issues this preseason, Luc Mbah a Moute and Milos Teodosic both will be available when the Clippers begin regular-season play Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets, Rivers said. “Kentucky, Boston College, great job,” Rivers said.It hasn’t been easy, said Robinson, who has been working hard to find the balance between trying to put the ball in the basket and trying to set up the more experienced professional scorers surrounding him.That’s been a challenge, he said, but it hasn’t been the toughest part of his new job.What’s pushed him most?“So many ball screens,” Robinson said. “I never really ran off so many ball screens in college, it’s literally all ball screens. So just trying to get through without getting hit is hard, because you’ve got screeners who are in the league to screen, you know what I mean?” What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
