COTU boss Francis Atwoli who recently agreed to work with Kenya Kwanza government despite rallying behind Raila Odinga's led Azimio on 31/12/2022 changed tune on DP Gachagua who opposed Sakaja's move to bring sanity in Nairobi CBD.
Speaking via K24 TV, Atwoli has urged president William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua to fully support Johnson Sakaja's move in order to clean up the congested Nairobi CBD.
According to Atwoli, changes should be made in Nairobi CBD for it to look like an international city and not a city where drug dealers reside. He therefore named Cairo, Abuja, Kigali, Johannesburg and Paris as cities which Nairobi should resemble.
" We must bring sanity in Nairobi and we must support Johnson Sakaja the governor of Nairobi to make sure Nairobi has an organised public transport. Hapana mambo mtu anaingia kwa matatu unafinywa nikama unaingia kwa shimo", he said.
Sakaja had earlier on ordered long distance matatus to relocate from CBD to green park terminus, a move which was highly opoosed by Deputy president Rigathi Gachagua.
Rigathi retorted that Sakaja was elected by kikuyus and therefore should not distract theie business in town.
Meanwhile, let us wait and see what happens next.
