Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has announced the prohibition of hawking along lanes connecting to Moi Avenue in the Nairobi Central Business District as part of a revitalization plan. He stressed the need for a level playing field for all businesses in the CBD and proposed alternative spaces for affected hawkers.

In a move to revamp the streets, Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has declared that hawking activities will be banned along the lanes connecting to Moi Avenue in the Nairobi Central Business District. He emphasized the importance of a fair business environment and suggested alternative areas for the affected hawkers to operate.

Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja is taking measures to curb crime in the Central Business District by banning hawking on footbridges and prohibiting street families from living on pedestrian bridges. These actions follow concerns about street families’ involvement in organized criminal syndicates in the CBD.

Sakaja stated that street families had infiltrated the footbridges and were contributing to rising crime in areas such as Moi Avenue, Uhuru Highway, Haile Selassie Avenue, and around Nairobi Railway Station. He emphasized the need for security and cleanliness on public utilities like footbridges.

Additionally, Governor Sakaja revealed plans to register all boda-boda riders and assign them specific operating areas and drop-off points in Nairobi’s CBD. This registration aims to address concerns about a few riders allegedly involved in criminal activities, allowing for better regulation of the sector and enhancing safety.
