A section of persons living with disability in Nairobi City County are now asking Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko together with his administration to come out from their comfort zones and fix the the lift mess at the City Annex Building that has left many Nairobians, expectant mothers seeking services walking several floors up to access vital services.
Director of Dolphine Special Program Peter Selenyi, he has received many complaints from people living with disability over their inability to access county offices situated at City Hall Annex over the faulty lift that has remain shut the last two months.
‘’It’s a shame in a big county like Nairobi where we collect 50-100 million shillings a day we cannot maintain lifts in a public office for residents to use, persons living with disability are forced on stairs to access offices,’’ he added.
And as the the group continues to lament some of the senior officers at governor Sonkos’ administration with offices at Annex have taken advantage of the situation and are now not reporting to work.
Meanwhile the county director of communication office of the governor Elakana Jacobs states that the governor is aware and the problem will be fixed soon .
The lift has two elevators installed in 1981 both of which are not in good condition.
