Nairobi Governor Sakaja Johnson held his first engagement meeting with National Government Administration Officers (NGAO) and National Police Service (NPS) drawn from Nairobi County on Thursday at the Kenya School of Government.

The consultation and coordination meeting brought together the National Government Nairobi County Security team led by the Regional Police Commander Adamson Bungei, Regional CIO Peter Njeru, The National Government Administration Officers, Nairobi team led by Regional Commissioner Katee Mwanza, County Commissioner David Wanyonyi, all Nairobi OCPDs, OCSs, DCCs, ACCs, DG Njoroge Muchiri, and the Nairobi County Executive, the Nairobi Sub County and Ward Administrators, The Nairobi County City Inspectorate, Mobility, Urban Planning, Lands, Environment, and the Nairobi Liquor board.

During the meeting, Governor Sakaja requested teams present to get to know each other and schedule meetings, and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) would also be developed to guide operations at the Sub County level.

This comes in the wake of Governor Sakaja directing that all drinking joints located around public transport termini be closed. The Governor made it clear that the crackdown will continue until all outlets within the matatu termini are closed. The County also echoed the support from the National Government through the Cabinet Secretary Ministry of Interior while at a meeting in Kiambu County on the fight against illicit alcohol and promised to follow the directive to the letter in Nairobi County.

 

Said Governor Sakaja, “Our discussions centered around coordination of enforcement and joint efforts towards maintaining order and security in Nairobi. We have agreed on mechanisms and strategies to step up our actions on illegal dumping, illegal construction and encroachments, noise pollution, liquor licensing and drug control, traffic and PSV management, vandalism of street lights and infrastructure, and propagation of National and County Government policy in the grassroots. We must now get to work to ensure our city, which is the capital of our beloved country Kenya, functions like other leading cities of the World in order for us to continue attracting businesses, investments, and tourism. As you may be aware, UNICEF and UNFPA offices in New York are relocating to Nairobi. This is good for our city. When the world’s leading humanitarian organizations find a home in Nairobi.”
