Kenya Railways moves to court to reverse SGR ruling

Kenya Railways Corporation has moved to court seeking the reversal of orders issued by the Mombasa High Court to halt part of the construction of the standard gauge railway.

Through lawyer Cecil Miller (pictured), the company said the public interest outweighs that of private owners.

“The learned judge erred in law and in fact by granting the conditional conservatory orders without appreciating the amount of time taken for disbursement of funds by the National Treasury,” he said.
