Kenya Airports Authority  announced the suspension  through  Twitter on Tuesday “pending further consultations with our airport stakeholders”.

The authority revised the rates by Kenya Airports Parking Services (KAPS) but protests were the result.

Sharp criticism

The  move to increase the fees has seen widespread condemnation  and  criticism directed towards KAA.A loby group by the  Nairobi Foundation  has also filed a lawsuit arguing the new charges were exorbitant and exploitative and that the people were not involved.

Under the new charges, motorists pay Sh100 for a 20-minute stay at the airport, Sh250 for between 20-40 minutes and Sh350 for up to an hour.

Those wishing to park for more than 24 hours will pay Sh1, 000 and it will cost Sh1, 000 to have a car unclamped.

The new fees were to be effected  on April 15, in a move aimed at curbing  idleness as well as unwanted guests roaming around.
