Nairobi City Governor Mike Sonko has issued orders to cancel procurement of official vehicles for top county officials.
Sonko says the Sh. 400 million budget allocated for the purchase of top range vehicles in the 2019/2020 financial year will now be diverted for the purchase of ambulances for Nairobi County health centers, construction of roads and regeneration of Nairobi River.
The Governor has said for the interest of Nairobi residents, there is need to allocate more funds for development projects rather than purchase of vehicles for the Nairobi City County Government officials.
“City Hall has enough vehicles to serve county officials for the next financial year. There is no need to allocate millions of funds to purchase brand new vehicles yet we can reallocate vehicles to our departments to ensure we continue serving Nairobians without a hitch,” said Sonko.
Speaking during the 46th World Environment Day that was held at the Railway Training Institute in South B estate, Starehe Sub-County, Sonko said the budget will now be reallocated for the purchase of ambulances for Nairobi County health centers, construction and rehabilitation of roads and regeneration of Nairobi River.
