Yesterday, Justice James Makau said the new rates will remain suspended pending further directions by the court which is slated to convene on January 21 for a hearing.

COFEK has petitioned against the new tariffs urging that Nairobi City County did not give motorists adequate time before effecting the changes. Cofek also argued it was unfair that the public wasn’t notified when the Finance Act was enacted into law on September 25.

“You will be usurping the role of Nairobi County Assembly if you suspend the notice,” Nairobi County Government Lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui had asked the court to decline Cofek’s petition stating that the executive was enforcing a law enacted by the legislative assembly.
