Petitioners in court to stop building of ksh65 billion JKIA-Westlands expressway

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

Two Nairobi residents presented a petition in court on Tuesday wanting to block a planned construction of a multi-billion-shilling expressway from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Westlands.

Rhoda Aoko and Henry Shitanda, the two petitioners, stated there was no public participation as required by the law terming the project as illegal.

“The project as it stands is founded on illegality and contravenes the fundamental principles and national values of the constitution of Kenya of transparency, openness, the involvement of the people and public participation,” reads court papers.

They further explain that everything on the project from the design negotiations, structures, and planning of the highway were not shared in an open manner and there was no public participation.

Aoko and Shitanda have accused the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) of not responding to their letter dated November 21st, 2019.

The two say the agency ignored their letter where they were requesting KeNHA to conduct public participation and get people’s views on the plans.

Investors from the United Kingdom have made a deal to construct 80,000 houses, which will be under President Kenyatta’s new affordable housing project.

The project to build the new housing units was finalized during the inaugural UK-Africa Investment Summit held in London last week, according to Housing Principal Secretary Charles Hinga.

“During the UK tour, we managed to get potential investors for 80,000 units, 30,000 of them under Nairobi Urban Renewal and 50,000 as rental units,” said Hinga.

At the summit, the Kenyan team by President Kenyatta made deals worth KSh170 billion. In a statement by the British High Commission in Nairobi, said the deals covered through housing, finance, renewables, and entrepreneurship “will create a new lasting partnership that will deliver more investment, jobs, and growth to Kenya.”

Through the National Affordable Housing Programme (AHP), Kenyatta’s government aims to construct 500,000 new units across the country by 2022.

The housing project, together with food security, universal healthcare, and manufacturing, are Kenyatta’s four main pillars that will build his legacy.
