In 1998 KLDA took the City Council of Nairobi (CCN) to court relating to a number of issues where it was seen that CCN was failing the Karengata and Nairobi residents.
The judge found for KLDA on one important issue‚ that CCN had not presented audited accounts for some years. He ordered that KLDA members should pay their rates to KLDA until CCN met the conditions in his judgement. It was expected that this would take a relatively short time but the matter is still outstanding.
Since that time KLDA has tried on a number of occasions to resolve the situation with CCN but various Town Clerks have in the end failed to agree on a resolution.
The only condition proposed by KLDA in the last five years is that the Karengata Local Physical Development Plan should be fully respected and implemented, i.e. that CCN should obey the law. So far CCN has found this unacceptable.
