President Uhuru Kenyatta and counterpart Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja joined General Badi, Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) director, in celebrating 100 days since the General took over Nairobi.
During the takeover, Uhuru had tasked Badi to issue out a report after 100 days showing the works he had done since he took over Nairobi from governor Mike Sonko Mbuvi. Badi took over the capital city in February 2020 after Sonko surrendered some duties to him.
On Tuesday, the 30th of June, Uhuru flagged off five ambulances and 22 NMS water trucks at Harambee house. NMS will use these provisions to compliment some water projects in Nairobi’s informal sectors.
“I issued several directives to NMS to achieve within the 100 days, which period ended on Saturday, the 28th of June this year. The directives were aimed at enhancing service provision in the areas of waste collection and disposal, water and sanitation, housing and urban development, transport, and public works.”
I am satisfied with the work.
President Uhuru expressed his satisfaction in General Badi’s work in Nairobi. He further challenged the General to continue with his excellent work.
“I am satisfied that the directives for the first 100 days have been implemented in earnest. I challenge NMS to demonstrate that Nairobi can be the model of our Post Covid-19 National Recovery Strategy.”
NMS Director-General assured the President that he would continue doing what is best for the county. According to him, NMS has engaged the youth during the Kazi Mitaani Initiative.
“On re-carpeting of CBD roads, NMS has completed 30 percent of all the roads and is using the Kazi Mtaani initiative. To this end, NMS has engaged our youth in drainage clearing, waste management, and rehabilitation of roads.”
Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja also applauded Badi for his exemplary work in transforming the city.
“I joined the President today as he received the 100-day scorecard by the Nairobi Metropolitan Services on achievements in service delivery for Nairobi City County. Service delivery to Nairobi residents has taken center stage, and my office will continue to support the good work by NMS.”
