Nairobi senator Hon Mike Sonko Mbuvi has offered to help governor Evans Kidero deliver service to Nairobi. The senator in a new year message decries the non delivery of basic service to the city residents despite the heavy tax rates.
Here is Sonko’s message to Kidero>>
City Hall is overwhelmed by garbage collection and disposal, I am more than willing to hire lorries and trucks and personnel to help in garbage collection and disposal.
I will soon take a tour of all Nairobi residential areas to access the situation.It is imperative to note that City Hall pays hundreds of millions toÂ – Mt. Kenya Mafia owned – companies contracted to do garbage collection yet they give poor services to the people of Nairobi.
I intend to lobby and to request all Nairobi MCAs to follow suit and demand that residents do not pay taxes such as licenses for 2016 until they receive better services.
Further, if withholding taxes will not succeed, I will move to court to seek for an injunction to restrain Nairobi City County from collecting taxes from Nairobians until such a time that we shall be satisfied with service delivery.
