Nairobi’s business community anticipates a two-month wait for the one, consolidated license.
On Tuesday, Johnson Sakaja, governor of Nairobi, made the announcement that the process is 85% complete.
According to Sakaja, his deputy Njoroge Muchiri is in charge of the operation, and he often consults with industry professionals.
It was during an interview with Inooro Tv that Sakaja made these statements.
County management is overseen by DG Njoroge Muchiri.
In addition, he will be in charge of licensing, which he claims to be one of the most difficult tasks in Nairobi.
Sakaja had promised to implement a single QR-enabled permit before the August 2022 elections. This, he claims, would remove the need for various licenses and the associated difficulties in conducting business.
Business licenses include those issued by the city county, as well as certifications for fire safety, food handling, sanitation, goodwill, and land rates for property owners in Nairobi city.
Permits and licenses are renewed annually by the general public and the corporate sector.
