, NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 23 – More than five companies specialised in ground handling cargo services have sought to be enjoined in the Kenya Airport Authority’s (KAA) suit seeking to be part of the cargo handling business which is allegedly dominated by one company.
Trans Global Cargo Centre moved to court seeking an injunction stopping the management from announcing tendering of the service which it can offer through its lead company.
City lawyer Philip Murgor told Justice George Odunga that KAA should open up the business to public procurement to allow other participants in the industry to tender.
Currently, Trans Global Cargo Centre with its leading company logistics firm have dominated the business without being subjected to public procurement as required by law.
However KAA through its lawyers Mohamed Nyaoga and Guto Mogere have maintained that the matter before the judicial review should be taken to the commercial court for determination.
The lawyers said that they are not opposed other companies being enjoined in the suit as filed by Trans Global Cargo Centre.
