He warned that government officials who embark on new projects before finishing ongoing initiatives without authorisation will be held responsible. At the same time, President Uhuru announced that the Government will soon launch a new internet portal where all procurements will be publicised. The President said all procurements, tenders and contracts will be advertised on the portal to create transparency in order to safeguard public resources from theft.
