Om­tatah sues Leakey over SGR route through park

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Ac­tivist Okiya Om­tatah has filed a suit seek­ing the re­moval of Kenya Wildlife Ser­vice trus­tees from of­fice. He yes­ter­day said they can­not be trusted to be cus­to­di­ans of Kenya’s wildlife her­itage “be­cause they al­lowed the stan­dard gauge rail­way to pass through the Nairobi Na­tional Park”. He has sued chair­man Richard Leakey (pic­tured) and in­de­pen­dent board mem­bers Tom Lalam­paa, Nancy Saumu Pete, Brian Heath and Peter Kinyua, whom he al­leged were ir­reg­u­larly ap­pointed.
