MPs Vow to Block✋ Port🚢 Privatisation

A section of Coast legislators have vowed to move to court to block government plans to privatise the Sh27 billion second container terminal at the port of Mombasa.
The more than 10 MPs Monday said they would go to court if their efforts to stop the proposed changes contained in the Statute Law (Miscellaneous Amendment) Bill, 2019 in Parliament fail.
Speaking on behalf of the leaders at Royal Court Hotel in Mombasa, Mombasa Senator Mohammed Faki called on the National Assembly Transport Committee to take up the matter for investigations.
“Once the committee takes up the issue, then they would involve the public if we are to do the privatisation but for now we do not see the reason of giving the terminal to private hands. The MPs here are going to use their means to block the changes in Parliament and if they don’t succeed, then we will move to court,” said Mr Faki.
