, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 19 – A Nairobi resident has filed a suit challenging parking fees charged under City Hall’s newly introduced revenue collection system.

John Migwi is objecting a Sh28 transaction fee charged on mobile money payments which brings the total cost incurred paying for parking in the city to Sh228.

In suit papers filed Tuesday, the petitioner argues that the total amount charged for parking in the city contravenes county laws capping parking fees at Sh200.

Under the new system taken up after JamboPay’s contract ended, motorists are charged Sh200 for parking with an extra Sh28 as service charge.

Nairobi County Government and providers of the revenue service Nouveta Limited are named as respondents in the suit.
