Mulli Brothers farm input subsidy bid rejected

Date:

For the first time Mulli Brothers bid to supply fertiliser and seed in this year’s targeted farm input subsidy program has been rejected.

During the Bingu wa Mutharika administration, Mulli Brothers Limited had a hand on almost all government contracts amid reports that the late Bingu wa Mutharika had shares in the business.

Mulli Brothers’s contract for the 2012/2013 season was cancelled two months ago after the new govt came in amid reports that the previous tenders were awarded to DPP cronies though they had a very poor record last year.

Even the notorious DPP guru Noel Masangwi was awarded a contract.

“I can indeed confirm that Mulli brothers has not been awarded any of the contracts to supply the farm input subsidy programme,” said Managing Director of the group, Leston Mulli

He said he could not say why his company has not been awarded the contracts.

“The only people who can explain better are the people in the procurement department because I don’t even understand why we have been left out,” added Mulli.

“Our bidding prices were lower than those who have been awarded the contracts.”

Only Nyiombo Investments and Export Trading have been awarded contracts in the 2012-2013 farm input subsidy programme.

Government introduced the Farm input subsidy programme in 2005 in which resource poor households purchase inputs at subsidised prices.

This year 1.6 million farming families are expected to benefit from the initiative.
