Following the decision by the Nairobi City County Government to increase land rates from 17% to 34% of Unimproved Site Value (USV), Kara decided to be enjoined as an interested party in a case filed by Kaputei Gardens Residents Association.

The hearing of the case has been fixed for May 19, 2015.

We have established the KARA Rate Case Kitty to cater for the expenses pertaining to the court case. The contribution to the kitty is not a fixed rate and members/well wishers are free to make a decision on how much they are willing to contribute. Cheque payments should be made to KARA or call us for M-PESA contributions.

We appreciate those who have made their contribution to the KARA Rates Case Kitty and request those  who are yet to contribute to do so as soon as possible

We have received numerous enquiries from members on whether to pay the new or old rates for this year. The High Court made an order that rate payers continue paying the old rates until such a time the case is fully determined. You are therefore within the provisions of the law to continue paying the old rates (17% of Unimproved Site Value) and while doing so, you can do a note to the County Government drawing their attention to the court order for case number JR 113 of 2014.
