According to reports, Sonko’s Rescue Team has been dispatched to various constituencies outside Nairobi’s CBD with the aim of completing the project within the governors first 100 days in office.
On Wednesday, the team was sent to clean Burma market in Kamukunji constituency.
“My mission as Governor is to completely transform and restore our city’s once glorious image.”
“The cleaning campaign which includes; unblocking sewers, removal of campaign posters, clearing mounds of garbage, responsible garbage disposal, e.t.c will continue until Nairobi is declared the cleanest city in Africa,” Sonko said back in August.
The first 100 days which is set to end on November 29 will be a big determining factor for the Nairobi governor as to whether he is capable of keeping his promise to the citizens of Nairobi.
So far the project has extended to several areas including Kamukunji, Dagoretti North, Westlands, Makadara, Kariokor, Burma, Kangemi and Wakulima market; areas notorious for garbage problems.
