Bus companies sue government over terror links

16 April 2015, 13:26 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Four bus companies have sued the government for freezing their accounts and revoking their licenses over links to terrorism.

The four bus companies, E-coach, Sabrin, City-to-City & G-Coach have sued the state over last week's cancellation of their licenses over terror-funding allegations.

The bus companies were among 86 persons and entities whose accounts were frozen by the government after being accused of having links to terrorism.

The four state that there is no evidence provided by the government to prove that they have links to terror or have in the past been associated with terror.

They claim that the move by the government amounts to defamation and loss of business and have insisted that they are innocent.

The government did not give reasons for the move to ban the 86, stating that they had reason enough to freeze the said companies as intelligence confirmed that they were involved.

The four companies are seeking a temporary reprieve from the government in the meantime as the government proves the allegations against them.

City to City have previously been involved in a run-in with the government after one of its buses caused the death of 41 people in a road accident in Narok.

The order to freeze the accounts of the 86 was reached at after the Garissa University terror attack which saw 148 people killed by terrorists linked to the Al Shabaab terror group.
