Johnson Sakaja, the governor of Nairobi, has assured his detractors that there is no going back on the reforms he has planned for the city.
Governor Sakaja was responding to individuals who had criticised his decision to restrict nightclubs from residential neighbourhoods and to evict long-distance public transportation vehicles from the CBD.
His decision to transfer PSVs from the CBD in particular has placed him at odds with Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, who urged him to confer with him before making any decisions that might have an impact on the businesses of citizens.
“I’ve heard it said that Nairobi was like this before I was born, but I want to tell them; I am the Governor for a reason. Although change may be uncomfortable, it is essential for the city to advance.
“Nairobi is competing with other international cities, not Kisumu or any other city,” he said. “To achieve that, we have to make certain adjustments.”
