I have been tasked to build 24 hospitals in 100 days and I will achieve it – NMS Director-General Mohamed Badi declares

Nairobi Metropolitan Services Director-General Mohammed Badi on Friday 10 July 2020 revealed his plans for the next 100 days as he strives to bring a new face to the Capital city of Kenya.

In an interview with Horizon TV, he explained that in any government, budget allocation is never enough to tackle the existing problems.

However, his team prioritized the most hurting areas and it was focused to ensure that service delivery is given.

“For example during my takeover of the four functions, we have seen that all informal settlements do not have a single public hospital or dispensary. Mukuru for example, there are five Mukurus; Mukuru kwa Jenga, Mukuru kwa Rueben, Mukuru Viandani then followed by Pipeline and others.”

“If you count the population that lives in that informal settlement is more than 500,000. Now there is a single dispensary that has been built by the Catholic that has 8-bed capacity. That is totally injustice,” he stated.

The NMS Director-General explained that in order to reverse the worrying situation, he had been tasked with setting up 24 fully functional hospitals in Nairobi informal settlements.

He added that the centres should be up and running with complete medical equipment for the residents.

“In order to reverse this process, during my next 100 days I have been tasked to build 24 hospitals. Not only to build the infrastructure that those hospitals should be up and running with complete medical equipment and I intend to achieve it in the next 100 days,” he said.

He made it clear that the 24 hospitals were not being built in one area but across Nairobi County informal settlements.

He went on to explain that during the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic, he ensured that people living in Nairobi and could not afford water, soap and sanitizers were not left out.

He revealed that his team set up 93 boreholes which were completed within his first 100 days assignments.
