H.E Governor Sakaja A. Johnson on Monday morning flagged off 10 new skip loaders and Skips at City hall to boost garbage collection in the County.
“We remain committed to deliver our promise to the people of Nairobi, to clean up the city. This equipment will go a long way to ensuring garbage is collected and we keep our environment clean,” said Governor Sakaja when he flagged of the skip loaders.
