DP world Construction project Corruption Scandal in Somaliland

Somaliland's Foreign Minister and DP representative signing the draft agreement

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


Hargeisa (SC)  The Dp world is severely violated of Somaliland Tender Board policy and constitutional rights, according Somaliland Tender Act. Awarding construction contract without respecting Somaliland Tender policy plans, 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 project estimated $5 million constract by trespassing and disrespecting Somaliland constitutional and institutional rights. The initial face of Dp world were unwelcomed in Somaliland law makers and public in general.

Furthermore, after we contacted the Daryeel construction company General Manager and marketing manager, Mr. A/Rashid  and Mr. Awil respectively .we asked same question. How do you receive the construction contracted from the DP world without competition based on tender? Both gentlemen respond as same, that they exercise their leverage through Somaliland Ambassador Bashe Awil , Berbera Mayor Mr. Dicin as well as chairman of Somaliland chamber of commerce were facilitated to receive the project without bidding.

We also visited the Daryeel constructing sites, most of employee were Ethiopia. I asked the Daryeel marketing manager, do  recruite from Hargeisa or Ethiopia. He told me they were recruited from Hargiesa, and good at work when they compare to Somaliland citizens,and cheap labour and cost effective as well.

Without a reasonable doubt, Somaliland best tax payers are construction companies, according Somaliland ministry of finance annual best payer 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.
