Sonko’s Ksh800 Million Project That Has Nairobians Worried


Nairobians have expressed concern after the rehabilitation of Nairobi River, a project under the Nairobi Regeneration Project was allocated Ksh800 million by the Treasury.

Treasury Cabinet Secretary (CS) Henry Rotich had on Thursday allocated the funds during the reading of the annual budget on the floor of the parliament.

A section of Kenyans however found the allocation to the the Nairobi Regeneration Committee which is co-chaired by Governor Mike Sonko and former Nairobi Town Clerk John Gakuo overestimated.


Following the allocation, netizens placed one demand on the Regeneration Committee: That the waters of the river ought to be sparkling clean by the time the budget is spent up.



Even as some Kenyans expressed concern that the money will end up being looted, others offered different solutions on how to clean the filth from Nairobi River. 



The regeneration committee includes national and county leaders who have set ambitious goals and at one time promised President Uhuru Kenyatta that they will resign if they don’t deliver.


 The resignation promise was made when the team presented specific timelines to the Head of State for the delivery of key services, ranging from garbage collection to launching a mortgage refinancing company.
