President Uhuru Kenyatta has given Nairobi Governor a 30 days ultimatum to clear garbage in the city or resign.
The head of state says that if the regeneration team led by Sonko does not meet its timelines as agreed, should honour its words and resign.

Uhuru in a statement read by Statehouse spokesman Manoah Esipisu on Sunday said the directive follows a meeting between the President and the team on Friday.

The regeneration team is led by Governor Mike Sonko and Tourism CS Najib Balala.
Uhuru also directed Sonko to ensure traffic congestion within the CBD is sorted in the next three months.

Earlier in the Month, Transport CS James Macharia announced that Thika Road will have a dedicated lane for public service vehicles.

The government plans to introduce high-capacity buses of up to 100 passengers, Macharia added.

Uhuru on his third point said Health is a big issue and especially the lack of accident and emergency facilities in most parts of the country.

He said this will take longer than a month to fix, but still, significant progress is promised within six months.

On Friday President Uhuru Kenyatta visited Kenyatta National Hospital incognito and was displeased by the intense pressure at its facilities.

Uhuru said more accident and emergency centres are required to get the centres working.
