unresolved payment may derail planned Launch of greenpark terminus as contractor threatens to sue

BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,22ND MAY,2022-The Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) may face challenges in launching the Nairobi Green Park terminus after the facility’s main contractor complained about unresolved payments.

Fairton Agencies contractor Osborne Yogo claimed that they have not been paid for the construction of the terminus, claiming that the payment has been stalled for over a year.

Yogo has threatened to take the company to court to stop the launch, demanding that a payment plan roadmap be released.

“We are seeking to move to court to seek an injunction that this facility is not launched by Tuesday as it has been planned because there is no way the President can come and launch the place while it has not been paid for,” said Yogo speaking to NTV on Saturday.

“They have 24 hours to call us to a round table and give us a payment plan, a roadmap to our payment. And that should happen with a written commitment.”

However, NMS Transport Director Engineer Michael Ochieng denied any ties to Yogo, claiming he was unaware of the allegations.

Yogo claimed to have communication and transactional proof that they were in contact with Eng. Ochieng.

“There are several transaction and communication between us that can be available both to the investigators and the media to confirm that our engagement was there.”

NMS  announced that the Green Park terminus will commence operations starting Tuesday, May 24th.

The terminal, NMS added, will accommodate between 300 and 350 vehicles at a time, and up to 20,000 in a day.
