City hall adds 50 Chinese-made cars to its fleet

The Nairobi City county government has purchased 50 new cars to replace the old and dilapidated fleet.

Governor Dr Evans Kidero did not disclose the amount used to buy the fleet, but said they will be used to increase service delivery.

Some of the vehicles will be assigned to security patrols and maintenance of  law and order.

“We have purchased utility vehicles which will be domiciled in our respective sub-county offices. This way we are able to bring our services closer to you and serve you more effectively and efficiently,” said Governor Kidero.

City Hall is better known for its old and rusty jalopies which are set to be replaced with the new Grand Tiger 4×4.

At the same time, the governor appointed Cosmas Kyalo to be chair of the Advisory Committee on Regularization of Development in Nairobi City.

The team will be tasked with among other things inspecting unapproved buildings with an aim of regularizing the buildings that meet basic standards.

An estimated 60% of city dwellers live in unapproved buildings; thus making the teams appointment necessary.
