On Sunday, November 13th, 2022 As he spoke to the press after Sunday worship at AIPCA Dandora, Sakaja banned vendors and homeless families from using public footbridges to hawk their trade.
The governor said that criminal gangs utilize the footbridges as safe havens and bases of operations before launching attacks on innocent civilians.
“There were homeless people living under the bridge, but we removed them, cleaned it up, and called the fire department to install pipes so that no one could set up a shop or construct a home under the structure. If you need a place to do business, let us know, and we’ll help you locate a suitable location elsewhere (however not in a publicly accessible facility).” He stated.
While in church, Sakaja revealed that one of his closest friends had been murdered by a knife attack, a victim of the recent uptick in crime in the Central Business District.
He promised to collaborate with Inspector General Japhet Koome in an effort to reduce crime and bring peace back to Nairobi.
