Workers from the United Nations Office are set to enjoy benefits from a set of government initiatives intended to make their work easier.

CS Ministry of Interior and National Government Coordination Dr. Fred Matiang’i met with a group from the United Nations Office in Nairobi (UNON) led by DG Haja Zainab Hawa Bangura, to explore how to create a more congenial working environment for the nearly 5,000 UN employees in Nairobi, including 3,000 Kenyans.

Nairobi is home to the UNEP and UN-Habitat headquarters, as well as the regional offices of at least 22 other UN organisations.

It is one of the four largest UN offices in the world. 

CS Matiang’i reassured that the government has vowed to collaborate closely with #UNON to support their operations.

“The Government will work closely with #UNON to facilitate regional and international activities and is committed to enhance Nairobi‚Äôs attractiveness as a preferred host for the UN and other international organisation expansion projects.”

Among the focus issues will be the establishment of a dedicated Immigration Desk for UN staff and faster processing of work permits.

Present too was PS Dr. Eng. Karanja Kibicho, Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai and the DG Immigration Alexander Muteshi.
