Sonko Travels Abroad Over Traffic Jam Strategy (Video)

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko firmly shamed his critics over not carrying out his duties as the county boss.

Sonko had been heavily ridiculed over his failed execution in his duties as governor in regards to the case of congestion in the city.

In a video seen by this reporter, Governor Sonko is seen abroad carrying out a ‘benchmarking’ exercise on how to implement effective commuter trains in Nairobi.

The politician who had taken a trip to France, explains how the train system in Montpellier works.

“As you can see, the trains are at an interval of two minutes apart.” remarked Sonko.

He further notes that the trains don’t have to reverse once they get to the station due to having a dual cabin.

According to the leader, the cabins have pilots that enable the machine to go either way when departing from one point to the other.

On Wednesday, the controversial politician gave a sneak peak of the train that he intends to bring to Nairobi.

Sonko remarked that the state of the art train would complete the sophisticated commuter railway system intended to be in place by 2021.

The strategy would be a welcome gift to the residents as it would ease up on hours spent stuck in traffic snarl ups.

France President Emmanuel Macron in March 2019, had promised to help in the funding of the construction of the 20km railway link between the CBD and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

The once Nairobi Senator had proclaimed that links in plan to be erected include the Nairobi-Mwiki-Githurai-Ruiru, Nairobi-Imara Daima-Embakasi Village, Nairobi-Syokimau- Athi River, Nairobi- Kibera- kikuyu, and finally the Nairobi-Rongai- Kiserian link.

The tough talking county boss noted that the railway strategy had been marred with difficulty due to leaders politicising the plan.
