Once called ‘the green city in the sun’, Nairobi’s condition has deteriorated over the years, and there was hope after the new constitution that with a bigger budget, the county government would restore it to its old state. Kidero’s election in 2013 added to this hope because he was seen as a ‘CEO’.
The newly elected Governor, Sonko dispatched 50 trucks on an operation to clean up the city. This is great work by the Governor-elect and we hope the fire keeps burning in him.
Here’s the post he made on Facebook.
OPERATION NG’ARISHA JIJI
Today marks the beginning of getting rid of the stench that has plagued our city for a long time.
We have officially launched a general cleaning exercise that shall cover the entire county. My mission as Governor is to completely transform and restore our city’s once glorious image. I have ordered for the dispatch of more than 50 trucks to immediately begin this process.
The cleaning campaign which includes; unblocking sewers, removal of campaign posters, clearing mounds of garbage, responsible garbage disposal, e.t.c will continue until Nairobi is declared the cleanest city in Africa. #LetsFixNairobi
