A senior traffic police officer has confessed to journalists how traffic cops sabotaged a pilot project by the Uhuru government to decongest the City‚Äôs Central Business District.
The traffic police officer based in city‚Äôs CBD has narrated how the cops blocked all major outlets from the CBD on Monday to sabotage Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko‚Äôs plan to decongest the CBD by removing matatu‚Äôs from city center.
‚ÄúWe had to sabotage the CBD decongestion plan because all traffic cops depend on matatus for survival. They are our source of revenue since we are all poorly paid,‚ÄĚ he said.
Sonko has vowed that he‚Äôll make sure the city‚Äôs CBD is decongested during his tenure in office. City Hall together with the national government are planning to introduce Bus Rapid Transport buses as a way of streamlining the public transport system in Nairobi.
