Nairobi City County Takes Lead in Migration Governance: A Step towards Collaborative Action

NAIROBI: 5th April 2024

“Nairobi City County will chair the Secretariate for Nairobi City County Migration Governance ” this was confirmed by the Chief Officer for Social Services Mr. George Mutiso during the 1st Secretariate meeting with representation from County Commissioner’s Office, UNHCR, IOM, NCM, Non- State Actors and faith based organizations.

The Chief Officer said it was of great honor to have Nairobi City County as Chair of the Nairobi County Migration Governance Secretariat. “The journey that lies ahead of us marks a significant milestone as we come together to lay the groundwork for our collective efforts in addressing migration issues within Nairobi County. We understand the complexities and challenges that migration poses to our community, and we recognize the urgent need for coordinated action to address these issues effectively.”
Migration2Mutiso said “A leaner team has been established to draft the Terms of Reference (TOR) that will guide our work moving forward. These TORs serve as the blueprint for our actions, outlining our objectives, responsibilities, and the scope of our mandate. Through collaborative dialogue and constructive feedback, we must ensure that our TORs are robust and reflective of our shared vision.”

He said, “The team will develop a comprehensive work plan that outlines the activities and timelines for the Nairobi County Migration Governance Secretariat. This work plan will serve as our roadmap, providing us with a clear direction on how we will achieve our goals and objectives. It reflects our commitment to action and outlines the concrete steps we will take to address migration challenges in our county.

We cannot tackle migration issues in isolation; it requires a concerted effort involving all stakeholders – government agencies, civil society organizations, community leaders, and the private sector. By working together, pooling our resources, and leveraging our collective expertise, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of migrants and our community as a whole. I have high expectations for the Nairobi County Migration Secretariat, and I am confident that we will rise to the occasion.”
