KCB sues City Hall on Sh5bn defaulted Equity loan

KCB Group  has moved to the High Court to enforce the collection of Sh4.3 billion worth of loan and interest from the Nairobi County which has defaulted on the credit inherited from Equity Bank .

In an application filed before the High Court in Milimani, KCB wants the court to recognise a ruling from an arbitration dispute and compel the county government to settle the debt.

The county government was directed to pay KCB Sh4.3 billion in November last year after the matter was referred to Phillip Bliss Aliker, an arbitrator.

City Hall has, however, continued to default on the loan even after an arbitrator confirmed KCB’s claims and directed the Nairobi government to settle the debt.

“Leave be and is hereby granted to the applicant to enforce both the third interim award and the final award as a decree of this honourable court,” the application by KCB through the firm of Mohammed Muigai stated.

The loan was initially provided to the defunct Nairobi City Council by Equity Bank.

The debt was inherited by Nairobi County following the creation of the devolved governments in 2013.

KCB bought the loan from Equity in September 2014, offering better terms on the credit facility to the county government.

The county government through lawyer Steve Mogaka pleaded for more time to file an objection and also bring in the National Treasury and the Controller of Budget into the case following the latest KCB suit.

City Hall runs a budget that is dominated by payment of salaries to its bloated workforce, leaving little for payment of debt and key projects like building roads and hospitals.

Its budget woes have been worsened by the transfer of Nairobi’s key functions and cash to the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) under Major General Mohammed Badi.

Evidence presented before the court showed that Equity had lent Nairobi City Council Sh5 billion in 2011.

The money was supposed to help pay off statutory debts to allow the city council access Local Authority Transfer Funds (LATF) which represented resources previously provided by the national government before creation of counties to boost service delivery at the grassroots.

The remittances were made directly to the National Social Security Fund, the Kenya Revenue Authority, Local Authorities Pension Trust and Local Authorities Provident Fund.

Equity said in 2014 that City Hall owed it Sh4.75 billion, including an overdraft of Sh1.45 billion.

When KCB took over the loan in September 2014, it gave the county more time to repay the debt by increasing the maturity period to eight years at an interest rate of 13 percent.

Equity was charging a varying annual interest rate of between 18 percent and 24 percent on a reducing balance and the county was required to pay back the money in 60 months.

KCB also offered the county a six-month grace period before it could start servicing the debt.

But a dispute arose and the matter was referred to an arbitrator who made a decision issued on November 12, 2019.

The arbitrator, Mr Bliss, said the county owed KCB a total of Sh4.29 billion. He further directed the county to pay the lender Sh6 million as additional costs incurred while trying to pursue the debt and another Sh3 million for tribunal costs.

“The sums awarded to the applicant are significant. As such, it is necessary for the applicant to recover these amounts,” KCB said, adding that the county has been unwilling to settle the amount.

KCB’s chief executive Joshua Oigara sought the intervention of the National Treasury in a letter dated November 28, 2019.

The government is the top shareholder in the lender with a combined stake of 27.49 percent held through the National Treasury (19.76 percent) and NSSF (7.73 percent).

“In view of the foregoing, I verily believe that the applicant stands to suffer substantial and irreparable financial loss and harm in the event that the orders sought in the application are not granted,” said Mohamed Musa, an official of KCB, said in an affidavit.

The tribunal had noted that the county had admitted the debt but sought to stop the demand to allow it to transfer the loan to another bank, a move that was unsuccessful.

“These proceedings were stayed on the joint application of the parties for the purpose of enabling the respondent to repay its debt and transfer it to another bank,” the arbitrator disclosed.

    a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and views online.

    brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

  28. Can I simply say what a comfort to discover an individual who really understands what they’re discussing on the internet.
    You actually know how to bring a problem to light and
    make it important. More and more people should check this out and understand this side
    of the story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular
    given that you surely possess the gift.

  29. Greate article. Keep writing such kind of information on your blog.

    you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving
    us something informative to read?

There are many benefits of ditching your local bookie for a regulated sportsbook especially at a time where there are so many legal options. The US sports betting market is growing constantly and it would be a waste of stress to rely on illegal bookies. With local bookies, players have to wait for the settlement days to possibly receive winnings as opposed to regulated sportsbooks who have payouts returns in as quickly as hours for players. Regulated sportsbooks will most likely have more bet options because it is tailored to a larger amount of customers and will have the infrastructure to do so.

  35. You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I to find this matter to
    be really something that I feel I might never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely large for me. I am looking ahead in your next post, I will try to get the hang
    of it!

  36. Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed!
    Very helpful information specially the last part 🙂 I care for
    such information a lot. I was seeking this certain information for a very long time.

    Thank you and good luck.

  37. I am no longer sure where you’re getting your information,
    but great topic. I must spend a while studying more or understanding
    more. Thank you for wonderful information I used to be in search of this information for my mission.

Make sure you consider all situations and not just how much money you might save. For example, can you effectively search for a new home while you’re trying to sell your current one on your own? Flat-fee MLS, mentioned earlier, allows sellers to access the markets and strategies of traditional real estate brokers while retaining full control over the actual selling process. Rather than charging the commission, a brokerage may offer a set cost – a “flat fee” – to allow sellers to list on their local multiple listing service and retain the right to sell FSBO. When the home is sold a listing commission is not paid to the list broker but you still have to pay a buyers agent if one is involved in the sale. So you typically save at least 50% of the commissions.

    However, what about the conclusion? Are you positive in regards to the supply?

  46. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless
    think about if you added some great pictures or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site
    could certainly be one of the very best in its niche.

    Amazing blog!

  47. Under the old regime, doctors who believed their patients might benefit from herbal marijuana for medical purposes signed a declaration to Health Canada, attesting that alternative therapies had been attempted or considered, but had either failed or were inappropriate. Under this system, the authority of whether to grant permission to use marijuana rested with Health Canada. Patients who were granted permission to use marijuana for medical purposes had the option to grown their own, assign someone to grow it for them or acquire it directly from Health Canada. By Dr. Malcolm Brigden, MD At the same time, Health Canada — which oversees the country’s burgeoning medical marijuana industry — is running ads saying: “The science is clear. Marijuana use equals health risks.” http://whateffectsdoesmarijuana1.bearsfanteamshop.com/best-cannabis-vaporizer-pen Approximately one-in-four young (23%) Americans agree with the statement that they would be more likely to vote in an election where legalizing marijuana were on the ballot, and 32 percent disagreed. The plurality (43%) of 18- to 24- year olds report that they neither agree or disagree with this statement, essentially saying that it is a non-factor. There was no statistical difference in the number of Democrats (26%) who agreed with the statement compared to Republicans (21%). On top of reducing drug related crime, legalizing marijuana has shown to be a meaningful avenue of raising tax revenue. For example, Colorado’s legal marijuana industry has brought in over one billion dollars in tax revenue to the state since it abandoned prohibition. A portion of the tax revenue generated by a legal cannabis industry could be earmarked for police agencies, correctional facilities, drug rehabilitation centers, and crime prevention programs.
