The new deal between Uhuru, Sonko, and General Badi

On 5th June, Uhuru Kenyatta, General Badi, and Mike Sonko spent the day at Arboretum grounds. The three tried to find a way to work together. At the end of the day, the three struck a deal together.

A statement from State House says that the three met to mark the World Environment Day.

Governor Sonko has been working on conservation projects in Nairobi County. President Uhuru Kenyatta commended him on the excellent work done and urged him to work with the Nairobi Metropolitan Service team.

Governor Mike Sonko and Nairobi Metropolitan Service Director-General Mohammed Badi were locked in a battle. Both of them want to control the resources of Nairobi county. At one point, Sonko claimed that they had forced him to surrender Nairobi county to General Badi.

“They did not give me sufficient time even to read the draft. They just told me it is a good thing on service delivery to the Great people of Nairobi as I deal with my court cases,” Sonko claimed.

Feeling cheated, Sonko refused to allocate 15 billion to NMS. Consequently, President Uhuru Kenyatta had to allocate the money from his office.

The arboretum event

At the event, Uhuru said he would expand the size of wild reserves and parks. He also promised to ensure that the country maintains biological and botanical diversity.

“We are also reclaiming our Ngong Forest, and we are going to start the process of fencing it and ensuring that it is also available not only for the present but for future generations,” Uhuru said.

“We have done in the last one month another 2,000 acres for Nairobi National Park, and this is what we want to continue doing, including restoration of various green areas among them rehabilitation of City Park,” he added.

The President urged Kenyans to conserve the environment for their sake and the sake of the future generation.
