Sonko issues warning to traders, matatus banned from accessing CBD

Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has cautioned Nairobi traders ahead of the county government plans to revamp the city.

Acting county Secretary Leboo ole Morintant ordered all people who conduct business within Nairobi to pay the new business permits before Wednesday next week.

“Notice is at this moment given to all members of the business community and the public at large who have not paid for a unified business permit for the year 2017 to do so on or before September 20, 2017.

“No cash payment will be accepted at the City Hall office, and all other outlets, only banker’s cheque, EFTs and M-Pesa payments shall be accepted by the bank,” stated Mr Morintat.

The Nairobi County Government has also in a Gazette Notice provided new rules that will bar Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) from accessing the Nairobi CBD.

In the new rules which will take effect from next week on Wednesday (20/09/17), the county government has made changes to the omnibus termini and routes within the city.

Routes accessing the CBD from Waiyaki Way, Uhuru Highway, Kipande Road and Limuru road will be stationed at Murang’a Road (Fig Tree) terminus A.

All routes accessing the CBD from Thika Road, Kiambu Road and Ruiru will be at Murang’a Road (Fig Tree) terminus B.

All vehicles using Juja Road, Ring Road and Park Road to access CBD will park at Ngara Road Terminus.

PSVs using Jogoo road and Lusaka road will park at Muthurwa Terminus whereas those from Ngong Road will park at Railway terminus.

Other termini include Desai Service Road Terminus, Park Road Terminus, Hakati Terminus, Machakos terminus and the Central Bus Station.
