Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has ordered the reduction of parking fees from Sh300 to Sh200 in line with his manifesto.

Governor Sonko issued the instruction on Monday amid a back and forth on what motorists should pay.

The reduced fee is effective next Monday.

Nairobi members of county assembly passed a by-law for the lower parking fees in November 2018 and Mr Sonko signed it in December.

Despite that, parking attendants and the electronic payment service platform, ejijiPAY, still charged motorists Sh300 to park in the central business district.

Following complaints, Budget and Appropriations Committee Robert Mbatia said the matter would be addressed.
