Private developer claims bus park belongs to him

A row involving the Ol Kalou Town Council and a private developer who sealed the town bus park claiming it was his land took a new turn as residents threatened to move to court over closure of the bus terminus.
The town residents, led by Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry Nyandarua branch chairman Wahome Kamoche, said the only option in the matter was to move to court to compel the local authority to set aside land for the bus terminus.
Presently, residents are now forced to alight about a kilometre from the central business district where the council has designated a terminus.
Kamoche said that the seven day notice they had given the council had expired without any action being taken.
“We have already notified our lawyers to file a case under certificate of urgency because residents are being forced to walk for long distances to get to the town,” he said.
