KENYA POWER SUED COUNTY

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Court doc­u­ments say the money was owed by the old City Coun­cil and the county says it should be paid by the na­tional govern­ment. In May, Kenya Power moved to court to stop Nairobi from clamp­ing its premises fol­low­ing a dis­pute over non-pay­ment of debt. The debt arose from poles and wayleave charges the county de­manded on Fe­bru­ary 18 and wanted paid by the end of the month. KP, through lawyer Gad Ouma, wanted the court to stop City Hall from de­mand­ing the debt since 2002, say­ing poles and wayleave is catered for by the na­tional govern­ment.
