The Point has been reliably been informed that the supplier, Mohamed Kebbeh, who failed the contract is being arrested by the police and is helping them in their investigation.

The WFP signed the contract with the government on 17 July 2020, amended on 22 July 2021, under which the UN agency was to collect 8550 metric tonnes of relief rice from suppliers.

However, only eight out of 11 suppliers have delivered supplies to the WFP warehouses.
