Photos:Kidero’s car stuck in traffic jam,walks to a meeting


Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero resorted to walking from the CBD to Villa Rosa Kempinski along Chiromo Road for a meeting due to a traffic jam on Tuesday.

Kidero lightly said he lost “a couple of kilos” from walking the distance with his aides.

“I will ensure that the new raft of measures launched last week by Transport CS Michael Kamau and I takes effect immediately to reduce traffic and congestion in Nairobi,” he said via Facebook.

The meeting was for the launch of the 18th AFWA International Water Congress and exhibition set for February 22-26, 2016 at the KICC.

Among the measures taken to decongest the city were the suspension of the licensing of all PSVs pending the review of all routes and demand to justify additional licenses.

The Uhuru Highway and University Way, Kenyatta Avenue and Haile Selassie Avenue roundabouts will be removed in three months, Kidero said.

He added that the roundabouts along Bunyala and Lusaka roads, and in Westlands will be abolished.

Twenty one junctions along Ngong Road, Argwings Kodhek Road, Haile Selassie Avenue, Jogoo Road, Mombasa Road, Lang’ata Road and Kiambu Road are also set for removal.

Kidero further announced that PSVs will be allowed 40 minutes at termini and 5 minutes at bus stops, and mobile courts introduced on all roads.
