Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja now says the spate of crime in Nairobi has reduced by 47 per cent.
Speaking on Tuesday, August 8, 2023, Sakaja attributed the drop to the ‘Kazi Mtaani’ initiative in a surprise turn of events which had been launched by former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The county boss affirmed that the initiative had played a key role in reducing crime rates in the city and enabling the jobless secure incomes.
Sakaja also praised and likened the Housing Fund to the ‘Kazi Mtaani’ programme noting that the initiative would create jobs and enable youths and women in the society to eke a living.
He reiterated his administration’s commitment to creating businesses to provide employment for the youth.
The governor further urged President William Ruto to bring back the ‘Kazi Mtaani’ initiative or something akin to it so as to create more employment opportunities for the youth and reduce the spate of crime in the city.
