Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja has today announced that the county government will scrap off weekend parking fees for motorists accessing the city's Central Business District (CBD).

This according to the governor comes as part of the plans to boost the economy by encouraging businesses to operate over the weekends.

The county boss also assured traders and city residents of enhanced security in order to create a thriving environment for businesses during the weekends.

"I know times are hard…We also want to attract more visitors to the CBD during weekends. This will encourage business establishments to open during the weekend and also provide an opportunity for Nairobi residents to support businesses and accord them an opportunity to transact on the weekends," Sakaja stated.

While underscoring the importance of the move, the county chief further acknowledged that the decision will be a boost to Nairobi and enable the county to be at par with other global cities that exhibited vibrancy over the weekends.

"Other leading cities in the world are very vibrant during the weekends. Nairobi should adopt the same vibrancy. As this will ensure growth." he added.

The governor was speaking during the presentation of the Financial Bill 2023 by all county chief officers on Thursday, April 27, 2023.
