Kilifi mechanics issued a warning to the County Government after it failed to pay a Sh40 million debt accumulated over recent years.

As a result the mechanics have threatened to auction motor vehicles belonging to the County Government.

According to Kilifi County Garage Association (KCGA) chairman, Ignatius Luvati, fire engines and ambulances are among the vehicles that they are threatening to auction.

“The vehicles have been detained across the 22 garages in the county as a

result of pending bills that total to about Sh40 million after our plea for payment to the county government fell on deaf ears,” he said Thursday.

Ryan Auto Works, Bodo Auto Accessories, Daju Auto works, Concorde Motors, Kevula, Vegos, Samwhely, Japro and Ndimu Investment are among the garages threatening to sue the county government.

“It is through continuous meetings and discussions that we resorted to have an appointment with Governor Amason Kingi to address grievances to settle the issue,” he added.
