Nairobi Governor Hon. Johnson Sakaja has once again exposed himself to sharp criticism from Kenyans on social media especially Twitter when he ordered all Nairobians living in flood places to relocate with immediate effect.

According to Sakaja critics, the Nairobi boss ought to have been considerate before issuing his relocation orders to the City dwellers because he hasn’t issued any financial relief to those affected by the ongoing floods.

To some. Johnson Sakaj appears to be insensitive with his sentiments because most of the low-income earners live by hand to mouth jobs where it becomes difficult for one to vacate immediately. All the same, Sakaja has in the past days been on the receiving end from leaders from across the political divide who think that the latter has not been serious regarding issues affecting the City.

Some of the rivers that were highlighted were the Ngong River and the Mau Mau River.

“The bursting of the Ngong River banks has affected many areas across the city especially downstream including the flooding of Mbagathi Roundabout, flooding in Ectoville Industrial Estate in Mukuru kwa Rueben Ward, flooding in Mwiki Ward along Eastern bypass.

“Mau Mau River: The bursting of its riverbanks has seen churches and residential houses flooded in Westlands Sub County,” read the statement in part.

He added that the county government had initiated plans to address the situation.

However, Kenyans were also advised to be vigilant given that the weatherman had projected more rains for the week.

Yesterday, the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) was implored to apologize to Nairobians for endorsing a gubernatorial candidate whose competence was open to doubt.

Education analyst Janet Ouko on Monday argued that Nairobi’s management has been lamentable under Governor Johnson Sakaja’s rule, noting that it has attracted questions on his proficiency.

She also pointed out that Sakaja, despite having doubtful academic qualifications, was still granted a green light by the UDA party to contest and city dwellers are now bearing the brunt of that decision.
