And then he goes ahead to say this... @Regran_ed from @citizentvkenya - Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko says the ban of matatus from accessing the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) will help commuters in the city to exercise and remain physically fit.
Speaking on Monday morning as the ban came to effect, the Governor played down concerns that commuting between one termini and other was a tall order, saying that most city residents don’t go to the gym. “From Muthurwa to the CBD is a one minute walk. Many people don’t go to the gym. We want our people to exercise,” said @mike.sonko
The governor was questioned briefly on the matatu ban from the CBD while appearing before the Senate County Public Investment Committee over issues raised by Auditor General in the audit for 2014/15 Financial Year.... #MatatuCBDBan#NairobiCBD#Sonko#NairobiCounty#Nairobi Senator #PSVs#JohnsonSakaja - #regrann

Nairobi County Governor @Mike.sonko airlifts ailing veteran female boxer Congestina Achieng from her rural home in Siaya to Nairobi for treatment, promises her employment after rehabilitation.
Sonko said Conjestina, who has won many titles for Kenya, will be airlifted to Nairobi and taken to Eden Home Rehabilitation Centre. “She will be received in Nairobi. We shall buy her new clothes and take her to rehabilitation centre for care because she needs urgent medical attention,” said Sonko.
According to a video that has surfaced online, things are not going well for the 41-year old Conjestina, who lifted the Kenyan flag many times.
She participated in 27 fights, winning 17, losing four times, and drawing in six occasions.
In 2012, the former boxer was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder/paranoid schizophrenia and was admitted at Mathari Hospital.
However, the condition is seen to be deteriorating even after undergoing medication.
Sonko said Conjestina requires urgent medical attention. “She is among the patriotic Kenyan who made us proud, therefore, we shall not sit down and watch her suffer. We have taken up her case and we hope she will regain her health,” said Sonko.
According to her family, gone are the days when Conjestina would be accompanied by the who is who in the corporate world, but now she been left to fend for herself.
Two female candidates have been short-listed as front-runners for the position of Nairobi deputy governor after Governor Mike Sonko dropped two others.
On Friday, Governor Sonko stated that he had dropped former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru and gender activist and insurance executive Agnes Kagure.
The governor announced that lawyers Karen Nyamu and Jane Weru had the highest chances of being nominated as the next Nairobi DG in a few weeks.
Ms Nyamu sought to vie for the Nairobi Woman Rep seat but lost to Rachel Shebesh during the Jubilee nomination exercise in 2017 elections.
Jane Weru is the executive director of Akiba Mashinani Trust, a non-profit organization that deals with housing development & finance.
Governor Sonko reportedly received a list of 10 names before picking the four candidates for Nairobi deputy governor.
Reports had indicated that the Nairobi Governor was still consulting with the Jubilee Party leadership before submitting the name of the final candidate for vetting and approval by the County Assembly.
The initial nomination of deported lawyer Miguna Miguna for Nairobi deputy governor on May 17, 2018, was rejected by the Nairobi County Assembly.
According to the Assembly, Miguna’s nomination was rejected on grounds that his Kenyan citizenship was revoked.
CNN journalist Richard Quest @richardquest on Tuesday gave his opinion about some of the issues affecting Kenya during his first interview in the country.
He was talking to Capital Fm’s Maqbul Mohammed when he spoke about Kenya’s stability and certainty being crucial in the government's investment programs.
"Africa is rising, but it is always rising. You know why? It's because it lacks stability." he explained.
Quest described Kenya as a wonderful place to do business until the country has an election when we experience slow economic growth.
He insisted that investors like to know that there will be peace, security and stability of policy before and after elections.
The celebrated journo took note of Kenya’s vibrant and thriving economy by asking Kenyans to take advantage of the country’s potential to do business as well as the increased funding for businesses in Africa.
Here's a picture of him enjoying brunch at Giraffe manor.
