Government of Kenya wants to part with a whopping sh 5 billion to buy a Members Club land to enable expand Uhuru Highway and to put up a new Matatu terminus.
This news were dropped by Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja who observed that they were at the final stages of making this a reality and divulged that the said piece of land belongs to Kenya Railways Retirement Pension Scheme.
It is now official that the national government was committed to taking back the city from the county government after it started to appear that the Capital City was too heavy for a governor to handle.
This move has seen Governor Mike Sonko fight back the State both politically and in court to reclaim his job which he thinks is now threatened.
“Treasury has confirmed that the money is available and that the NLC is finalising the valuation for the compulsory acquisition of Railways Club land,” Sakaja divulged this to the Senate.
Reports have confirmed that the Uhuru Kenyatta led administration was buying the Nairobi Expressway Road project so that they can put up a bus terminus along Uhuru Highway for Matatus coming to the city from Mombasa, Lang’ata and Ngong Roads.
This project will help de-congest traffic from the city according to the government which is doing this through the newly created Nairobi Metropolitan Services NMS which is chaired by General Major Mohammed Badi.
Plans are that passengers plying the routes will be required to board the BRT buses once they land at the terminus.
Reports reaching this desk also indicate that traders running their businesses at the Kenya Railways Club had lost almost sh 200 million in demolition which is already underway.
Badi is facing off with Nairobi traders over his latest moves to revamp the city into a place where the world can start running to.
He has maintained that his mission was not to do politics but to execute that which his boss Uhuru Kenyatta had directed with an aim of making Nairobians proud again.
