In Summary

  • Speaking during the launch of Mwariro Market, Sakaja advised his subjects to pay tax and avoid unnecessary dumping of waste products
  • Sakaja’s government has allocated a big chunk of his budget to deal with fire incidents


Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has set a target of Ksh. 20 Billion in revenue collection in this financial year.

This is after this year’s revenue collection of Ksh. 9 Billion, surpassing last year’s Ksh. 10 Billion collected by the now defunct Nairobi Metropolitan Services.

Speaking during the launch of Mwariro Market, Sakaja advised his subjects to pay tax and avoid unnecessary dumping of waste products.

“We have to work together with residents of Nairobi for this city to work. When you are required to pay something by county officials please do, it is not harassment everyone has a role to play. You cannot be dumping waste products carelessly then you say Sakaja has not cleaned the city,” said Sakaja.

It is at the same event that Sakaja said that this year’s revenue collection had increased compared to the last ten years since the time devolution was formed.

” In these ten months we have been in office, our revenue collection has increased. Last year they collected Ksh.8 Billion yet they had everything but we have collected Ksh. 9 Billion. The other financial year that we are going to start tomorrow we are targeting 20 billion for development. That is why you are seeing street lights, bursaries and many more,” he added.

Sakaja’s government has allocated a big chunk of his budget to deal with fire incidents since fire cases have paralysed trading in several markets including Toi, Mutindwa and Gikomba.
