Nairobi cleans up to welcome Obama

16 June 2015, 13:21 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - With US President Barrack Obama's visit to the country just over a month away, the Nairobi County government has started cleaning up the city and especially roads Obama will use during his one day stay.

A cross check by News24 across the city revealed several cleaning crews, road construction crews and beautification teams taking charge of the city's pivotal motorways and streets.

The ones undergoing major work are Mombasa Road, Uhuru Highway as well as Lang'ata Road.

The County government is keen to give Obama and the hoards of people he will come with to the country a great view of the city.

" It is a long term plan but we are accelerating it due to the trip by Obama, which is important for the country," Nairobi County environment chief Evans Ondieki told News24.

" Yes, we are gearing up for Obama's trip but it is a long term plan to clean up the city," he added when questioned.

National Youth Service youths were also seen helping with the efforts to clean the city, a matter of concern for Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero.

" We are proud to be hosting such an important leader to the country and we must look the part," Kidero said over the weekend of the clean up process.

Obama will come to the country late July to open the 2015 Global Entrepreneurship Summit but details of his trip are as yet scanty for security reasons.

" We are working on a secure information line because understandably Obama is a big personality and security is key and those plans are being kept secret, Central Police Station OCPD Paul Wanjama told News24.
