Kenya: Transport Firm Challenges Joho Move to Bar Trucks From Using Mombasa Roads

GOVERNOR Ali Hassan Joho's move to stop heavy trucks from using certain roads has been challenged by a leading transport company in Mombasa. Baush Hauliers yesterday went to court seeking to quash Joho's order.

More that 250 trucks belonging to the company were grounded following the directive that barred them from using the Changamwe Roundabout-Moi International Airport road. The company's yard is on the road.

Baush Hauliers' lawyer Godfrey Mutubia said the trucks cannot leave or enter the yard due to the order that has declared the road a no-go zone for trucks. "The trucks cannot move in or out of the area without breaking the directive."
