Zone three will include all commercial centres that have not been mentioned on zone one and two and the parking will cost Sh100.

According to the Parking director, motorists who will move to zones with higher charges will have to top up charges.

Any tickets that will be lost will be charged Sh1,000 for the private vehicles.

This follows the assenting of the Nairobi City County Bill of 2019 by Governor Mike Sonko on September 25.

Sonko narrated that this was a plan to decongest the city and recover funds that have been previously lost due to corruption in collection of parking fees.
