Can we take time to appreciate the Nairobi Metropolitan Services?
Even though Governor Mike Sonko maintains that the entity is illegally running the county, at least we can see some tangible improvements.
The Nairobi CBD is starting to look like an actual city, with properly laid out roads and walkways for human and vehicle traffic.
We do hope that this will extend to the downtown parts of the City, which is where the madness really is.
With the revival of the railway transit system, it is likely that traffic on highways leading to the city will also ease up. And If General Badi and his team finally manage to kick out matatus from the CBD, then the glory of the City Under the Sun will be restored.
Meanwhile, here are the stories making headlines on Opera News today:
