The ministry of public works and transport has awarded an over E5.8 million tender to three companies for the maintenance of street lighting and traffic signal.

The tenders were awarded in accordance with the Eswatini Public procurement Regulatory Agency (ESPPRA)  Section 45 of the Public Procurement Act No.7 of 2011 following a competitive bidding process. SD Electrical (Pty) Ltd has been tasked to maintain the MR3 Mbandlane-Sikhuphe-Mpaka and won the tender at a contract price of E1 937 274.

Two other companies were competing with SD electrical, namely Solsun (Pty) Ltd and Mival Electrical Contractors and they both lost because their evaluation results were not responsive due to their inability to be in the category invited.

The second company is Pots Electrical (Pty) Ltd who has been tasked with the MR3 Mbabane-Manzini at a contract fee of E1 806 633.41. Five other companies had bidded for the tender and all lost because they were not responsive due to their inability to be in the category invited.

Lastly is AJ Electrical tasked with the MR3 Mbabane-Manzini with a tender contract  sum of E2 092 776.79.

In bidding for the contract, three other companies were in line, namely Mormond Electrical Contractors, NEB Electrical Contractors and Second Chance Electrical (Pty) Ltd. Neither of these companies were responsive due to inability to comply with the instructions, whereby they did not submit an original copy of the tax clearance,  and did not submit CIC registration certificate.

All three contracts total E5 836 684.20.
