As promised in our manifesto, the days of multiple licenses from the County are over. The UBP combines business, fire, food, health and advertising licenses into one.
We continue to make Nairobi Work, and I am glad that the UBP has now been activated as part of a deliberate effort to improve the ease of doing business parameters in this city. This electronic solution eliminates the issuance of multiple business permits in various service points, which has also been a key revenue leakage risk,” said the Governor
He continued by saying that the new system will now target a revenue of Ksh 20 billion which will then be used to fund projects within the city.
“With the activation of the UBP issuance on the NairobiPay portal, the county government is now on course to generate and reach its target of Ksh.20 billion in Own Source Revenues to fund development projects in the city,” said Sakaja
