Terror linked North Eastern buses fail in bid to get back insurance licenses.

By Farah Adan


Four buses that operate in Kenya’s North Eastern region and whose accounts were frozen by the government for their alleged role in terror activities have failed in their first bid to remain in business after a Nairobi court today declined to re-instate their insurance licenses.

High Court Judge Weldon Korir also declined to unfreeze the accounts of E-Coach, G-Coach, City to City and Sabrin bus companies.

The buses moved to court seeking temporary orders stopping cancellation of their licenses and insurance but Judge Korir said permits will be issued once all parties involved were heard.

He directed AG Githu Muigai, IG Joseph Boinett, Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery, the Terrorism Inter-ministerial Committee, the Insurance Regulatory Authority and the Central Bank of Kenya to respond by April 27

The buses want the order to have them out of business rescinded until they are proven guilty and accused the Insurance Regulatory Authority of applying the law selectively.

The case will be heard on April 29.
