Tweep’s logic on walkways reignites Nairobi design debate


A tweet on how the city badly needs walkways and pavements for pedestrians has reignited the debate of how Nairobi was designed.

Khadija MohChurchill tweeted how many people walk around the city yet there are no pavements.

Her tweet was widely shared as users debated on the redesign of Nairobi roads while others weighed in on how hawkers have been permitted by the county government to use pavements.

Governor Mike Sonko this week announced that hawkers will be allowed to sell their wares outside shops as early as 2pm, a departure from the past when they would come in after 5pm.

Khadija’s post on walkways and pavements was shared over 300 times as users weighed in.
