The High Court has temporarily suspended the increment in parking fees for Nairobi motorists pending the hearing and determination of a case filed by the Consumer Federation of Kenya (Cofek).
Cofek sued the Nairobi City County government following its move to double parking fees within the central business district from Sh200 to Sh400 effective December 4, 2019.
In the suit against Governor Mike Sonko's administration, Cofek said the notice given to the public was too short, unreasonable, punitive and discriminatory and that no public participation was conducted before the decision to raise the charges was reached.
Following the High Court order issued on Wednesday, motorists will now pay the old charges as they await the ruling on the matter.
The case will be heard on January 21, 2020.
