President William Ruto's Project That Has Impressed Azimio MCA Robert Alai

Social media influencer and new member of the County Assembly, Robert Alai, has praised President William Ruto and Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja for a project he sees as restoring the environmental dignity of the city.

President Ruto revealed that on Friday, he will be leading the launch to restore the currently dirty Nairobi River to what it used to be. This plan, according to the president, will be managed and controlled by the Nairobi River Commission, under the watch of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

Alai stated on Twitter that, he is indeed impressed with the ambitious Nairobi River and its environs cleanup. He also suggested that, another project that should attract Ruto's attention is the cleanup of Nairobi dam.

Alai also suggested that, Nairobi's dignity will be fully restored when proper sewerage systems in apartments have been installed, along with clean water and consistency in the supply of power, because public utilities attract investors.

Also, he added that buildings developers need to be penalized for leaving high-rise scrapers unfinished since it causes health and security risks.

"Great to see President @WilliamsRuto and Governor @SakajaJohnson moving with speed to restore the Nairobi River and its tributaries. We must also restore Nairobi Dam.

As residents of Kileleshwa, we will be demanding that all high-rise developments stop until public utilities like power, sewer, and water systems are upgraded. All developments must also adhere to physical planning regulations which demand that they allocate open and green spaces for a healthy society.

Developers who started buildings but stopped for reasons which are beyond the control of the city-county government should also be penalized. Abandoning sites that become health and security risks must end in Nairobi. We must have a city of order and dignity," he wrote while tagging Governor Sakaja.
