The first time Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja has announced "Nairobi Festival" dubbed as "vibe of the city", a fun-filled fair slated December yearly.
The county boss announced on Thursday during the roundtable meeting with the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) that is headed by the former Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Richard Ngatia, that the hyped festival will be held after 12th December Jamhuri Day Celebrations yearly.
Sakaja hinted that the fete will tap street locals to display various culture, food, creativity, Matatu awards, sports activities including Rugby, Football and Basketball tournaments.
"In December, we will set aside some street to display culture, food, creativity, have the Nganya awards of the best done Matatu, have rugby, football and basketball tournaments and many other activities" Governor Sakaja stated.
In a perceived step to resuscitate the ailing photography, videography, film in the creative industry, the county boss informed that there is need to amend archaic laws that will insulate the creative industry from collapsing.
"When we say we want pro business, it is not passive to stop harassment of traders, but we want to be proactive so that we facilitate and promote. There are so many archaic laws including those that hamper creativity and innovation and we are going to weed those out" added governor Sakaja.
Businesspeople should spend more time doing businesses and chasing compliance issues".
Over the decades, Photographers and Videographers have embroiled in frosty tussle with city hall operators on the requirements to shoot within the city.
