NCC loses

The Nairobi City Council has lost a long-running case regarding its controversial land rates increase in a case of concerned citizens saying enough – is – enough.

This is not likely to mean much since:
- Nothing in our courts is ever final, and endless appeals can follow.
- City council is known to ignore court orders and will probably do the same in this case
- Many residents have already paid and will continue to pay, fearing retaliation from council workers.
- Case not well known.
- Still WECareAboutNairobiDOIT did a great job. Next up, is a section of the business community challenging electronic tax registers.
