The High court on Wednesday suspended Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s new parking fee notice that was supposed to take effect on Wednesday.
This is after Consumer Federation of Kenya (Cofek) had moved to court arguing that increasing parking fees in the CBD would affect Kenyans.
Justice Makau who suspended the notice stated that Cofek had raised pertinent issues that needed to be determined by the court.
City hall last week issued the public notice dated 2 December increasing the parking fees from the current Sh200 to Sh400.
The notice signed by Tom Tinega, the county’s director parking services indicated the order would take effect on December 4.
The Court gave City hall 21 days to file their responses ahead of the the hearing date on January 21, 2020.
