In Summary
  • Mr Kenyatta said time has come for elected leaders to put in place policies that would facilitate better governance.
  • Mr Sonko said the leaders will work to implement Jubilee’s transformative agenda and improve services.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has told Nairobi Jubilee Party leaders that they must avoid squabbles and deliver real change to the residents.

During his meeting with the elected leaders - from Governor-elect down to MCAs-elect, the President said resolving the city's challenges was why they were voted in.

"Nairobians want to see efficient garbage collection, clean water, and better traffic flow.

"In short, they want to see a rapid and significant improvement in service delivery," Mr Kenyatta said at State House on Saturday.

PUBLIC TRUST
He congratulated the politicians for their victories but warned them that the public's confidence in them will be eroded if they fail to deliver.

"Most of you have been elected for the first time, don’t allow power to get into your head.

"I have seen many taking that route and they failed. Wananchi are our bosses and that’s why we want to change Nairobi for the benefit of wananchi," he added.

DEVELOPMENT

He said Jubilee leaders need to work as a team to transform the city.

"We want to change Nairobi, not for the benefit of leaders, and not for the benefit of the few who are able to make it on their own.

"But for the majority who depend on us to change their lives."

VOTE
Mr Kenyatta said time has come for elected leaders to put in place policies that would facilitate better governance.
