Nairobi, Kenya: Nairobi residents have to contend with traffic jams after the High Court declined to reverse the decision by the Nairobi county government to block certain roundabouts in a bid to decongest the city.
High Court Judge Weldon Korir, however, allowed Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko to pursue the matter without any interim orders, saying it raises weighty issues.
He directed Sonko to file and serve the Nairobi county government and Transport Cabinet Secretary within three days.
Sonko went to court under a certificate of urgency, stating that the decision to close roundabouts was unlawful.
However, the Nairobi county government argued that the application by Sonko had been overtaken by events as Governor Evans Kidero (above) had already reopened Bunyala and Lusaka road roundabouts.
