Businessman Paul Kobia has asked the court to include General Mohammed Badi and Nairobi Metropolitan Services in a case seeking to stop the county government from banning or prohibiting Matatus from the city centre.
In an application which was certified urgent, 50 matatu SACCOs and the businessman moved to court seeking to enjoin Badi and NMS into the suit.
Through their lawyer, Henry Kurauka, they want the court to order that the conservatory orders which had been issued against Governor Sonko and the county government stopping the ban be served to Badi.
"That this court be pleased to order that the conservatory orders in force to prevent the respondents from implementing a decision to ban or prohibit public service vehicles from accessing Nairobi City pending the hearing of this petition to apply to Nairobi Metropolitan services and Maj-Gen Badi," said the petitioners.
The applicants aver that some functions such as transport were transferred to the national government to be implemented by NMS.
Earlier this month, the applicants say Badi and NMS purported to implement the ban prohibiting PSVs from accessing Nairobi's Central Business District.
