Nairobi Governor Sakaja denies plans to ban private vehicles from the CBD


Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja denies plans to ban private vehicles from the Central Business District (CBD).

Sakaja acknowledges that matatus transport more people per trip than private vehicles and should be given priority.

Some have suggested that private vehicles be banned from the CBD to create a more seamless transport system.

Instead, the county government plans to introduce more charges for private vehicles within the CBD, including a new parking fee model.

The government will also implement a new model that allows private vehicle owners to connect to the CBD using the Bus Rapid Transport System (BRT).

The rollout of the BRT will begin soon, and numerous investors have expressed interest in the project.

According to Sakaja, the delays were caused by a Cabinet memo that has yet to be released.

Sakaja has talked to President William Ruto and Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen to ensure that all road projects are completed.
