The Nairobi county assembly leader of minority Abdi Guyo however asked the governor to allow the youth from the wards to manage the public toilets in order to to earn revenue.

Governor Sonko made the directive earlier in the week that public toilets will be free for the public. Kenyans raised issues as to who would clean the facilities if they are free.

He said that he made the decision after realizing that cartels mismanage the money that is collected.
