President Uhuru Kenyatta has commended the Nairobi Metropolitan Service (NMS) for its efforts in improving service delivery in Nairobi and its catchment.
President Kenyatta spoke today at Harambee House in Nairobi when he received the 100-days performance report by the NMS.
At the ceremony also attended by Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja, the President challenged NMS to work towards making Nairobi a model city.
“I challenge NMS to demonstrate that Nairobi can be the model of our Post Covid-19 National Recovery Strategy,” President Kenyatta told NMS top leadership led by Director General Mohammed Badi.
“To this end, NMS has engaged our youth in drainage clearing, waste management and rehabilitation of roads,” DG Badi said, adding that street families provide the bulk of the labour force for the ongoing construction of Grogan Road.
Shortly after receiving the NMS report, the President toured some of the agency’s projects in Nairobi’s informal settlements.
The housing projects are being implemented by the state department of housing, NMS and Nairobi City County.
