Sadly, the scenes have turned chaotic as the people could not hold a peaceful demonstrations. Angry youths have lit fire and blocked the roads to ensure that the government listens to them. The police have been sent to contain the situation and disburse the angry Kenyans. Sadly, there has been a clash between the police and the traders in the area. This has led to the shooting of two people in the process as confirmed by Nation Africa news on twitter.
The Nairobi Metropolitan Services is a citizen-centric public service that was formed on March 9th 2020. This was after an agreement between Mike Sonko and Uhuru Kenyatta as he was facing impeachment and inability to run the city. This led to the transfer of four core functions from Nairobi City County Government to the National Government which includes administrative purposes and cleaning the city.
