Nairobi taxis to be registered in 6 months – Kidero

During the meeting at City Hall, the chairperson of the Transport and Urban Decongestion Committee Marion Mutugi emphasised the need for a critical look at the decongestion process in Nairobi as there are health and environmental risks involved in addition to a negative effect on the economy.

“Nairobi belongs to all of us so when it is ground to a halt, all of us are inconvenienced. But even more important, one of the things that came up very strongly is not only the economical impact on traffic congestion but also with regard to the environment,” she said.

“People are moving out of the city centre and going to the periphery because it does not really make any sense to spend four or five hours getting in and out of Nairobi. Noise has been shown to be one of those things that have a negative health impact on people.”
