SGR ALERT: Speedy Public Hearings Set
- starting already tomorrow 22nd Sept. -
PUBLIC CONSULTATION MEETINGS FOR THE NAIROBI-NAIVASHA STANDARD GAUGE RAILWAY (SGR) PROJECT
- ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT (ESIA) -
Though a constitutional case is pending against KRC/SGR phase 2 affecting Nairobi National Park and despite the fact that in another legal case a stop order has already been issued by the National Environmental Tribunal (NET) against SGR phase 2, Kenya Railway Corporation (KRC) now pushes on with hasty ESIA processes they could and should have done many months ago.
All stakeholders are invited and should come to Public Consultation Meetings concerning the phase 2A (Nairobi South Station - through Nairobi National Park - Twala Area - Ongata Rongai - Emulbul (Ngong) - Naivasha - Suswa - Duka Moja - Narok).
The meetings are scheduled as follows:
|1||Nanju||22. September 2016||NANJU||10h00|
|2||Ewaso Kedong||22. September 2016||EWASO KEDONG||14h00|
|3||Twala||23. September 2016||TWALA (very important)||10h00 and 14h00|
|4||Ongata Rongai||27. September 2016||Caholic Church Hall NKOROI (subject to reconfirmation)||10h00|
The extremely short notice (letter dated 19th - arrived 21st - first hearing 22nd) is consistent with and typical for the conning way KRC, their Chinese contractors and the officials try to outmanoeuvre the public.
Please get prepared and come all to these important consultations!
On Saturday 24th September you then can do A Walk in the Park To Save Nairobi National Park
