Nairobi County Governor Mike Sonko through his office has announced plans to reduce parking fees effective Monday next week.

The new parking fees will see motorist pay a reduced fee from of Ksh 200 a day from Ksh 300 a day.

In 2013 it will be remembered that parking fees in Nairobi were increased from Ksh 140 to Ksh 300 a day in a bid to increase revenue collection in the city.

Governor Mike Sonko admits that the reduced prices will increase congestion within the city but a statement from Transport CS James Macharia indicate that through the planned BRT bus services, congestion will be very low.

In 2017 Nairobi County through the city hall rolled out a cashless payment system that saw motorist pay via Mpesa service.

The new service was to reduce theft cases as collections will automatically be received at one point in a secure manner.

Deputy Governor Appointment

The Nairobi Governor had announced plans to appoint his deputy come Friday 11th January 2019.

The appointment comes after the seat fell vacant in January 2018 following the resignation of the Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe.
