Chairman of the Nairobi Matatu Operators, Jimal Ibrahim, also known as Jimal Roho Safi, is pursuing the governorship of Nairobi County.
He explained that Nairobi needs a good manager who knows the problems that most people face.
“This city cannot be managed by an old person. I am 30 years and as a youth, I interact with most of them on a daily basis and I understand what they go through before they earn a living,” he said in an interview.
Jimal said he wants to improve the transportation sector and provide work chances for young people.
Jimal has worked in the Matatu industry for 11 years, including five years as the chairman of the Association of Matatu Operations.

“There is a major problem in the transportation sector,” he stated, “but I will be in a better position to administer the city since I already understand the issues that people confront.”
He will battle out with other hopefuls including current deputy governor Ann Kananu, Bishop Margaret Wanjiru, Senator Johnston Sakaja among others.
