Kenyans gather at Uhuru park to protest plans to hive off sections of the park for Nairobi Expressway

Nairobi, 8 December 2021 – Environment and Land Court granted conservatory orders yesterday, Tuesday 7 December, stopping the felling of trees and any other renovations at Uhuru Park. Natural Justice is thrilled with this ruling because it reaffirms that even government agencies
must follow the rule of law.

Earlier this month, Katiba Institute and Natural Justice, as members of the Daima Coalition submitted access to information letters to the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) seeking information on whether an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) was done before the renovations at Uhuru Park commenced. Indeed, NEMA confirmed to the court that no Environmental Impact and Social
Assessment (ESIA) report was submitted for consideration. Click here to read the full statement.
