The Mombassa – Mariakani Highway Project in Kenya has been the subject of a series of complaints from members of the affected communities. The Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (BCRM) received the first Complaint from Mr. Ali Mwanza, a national of Kenya, on 27 December 2017. He claimed to be standing on his own right and on behalf of other people adversely affected by the project. His letter is included in Annex 1 of this Notice. Mr. Mwanza accused the project of violating the Involuntary Resettlement Policy of the Bank because of the demolition of some properties without due compensation, inadequate compensation amounts to those that had received one and the lack of disclosure of project related information. These shortcomings have, he claimed, led to businesses standoff. Unfortunately, Management did not respond to his earlier queries. He invited BCRM to play a mediation role, visit the project site, hold meetings with the project promoter, Kenya National Road Authority (KENHA), and interview the PAPs on matters that have affected them, because of the project.
