The National Environment Tribunal (NET) has given a stop order for the construction of the SGR Phase 2A, Nairobi-Naivasha, after they received an appeal from activist Okiya Omtatah and the Kenya Coalition for Wildlife Conservation and Management.

The two entities said that they filed the appeal to the tribunal after NEMA failed to stop the already underway SGR construction on phase 2A despite of not having the license from the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as required by the law.

The China Road & Bridge Corporation was still going on with construction as the opposition made their plea to offer alternative routes. This proves to be a big step for the conservationists and all the residents opposing the SGR into the NNP to be heard.
