Sakaja announces annual Nairobi festival
Nairobi county Governor, Johnson Sakaja announces annual Nairobi Festival that will honour the vibe of the city.
The Nairobi festival will be held every December after the Jamhuri day celebrations.
Speaking today during a courtesy call with the Kenya National Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Sakaja said the festival is aimed at celebrating the culture, art and the vibe of the city.
Hon Sakaja said,”In December, we will set aside some streets to display culture, food, creativity, have the nganya awards for the best done matatus, have rugby, football and basketball tournaments and many other activities.”
During the campaigns, Nairobi governor promised to promote the young talented youths of Nairobi.
This move realises his promise to support and promote the local talents in Nairobi county.
Hon. Sakaja also amended the laws that allow photographers, videographers and other creative artists in the city to shoot without prohibition.
This he said that a review of laws prohibiting vidoegraphy and photoshoots in the Central business district (CBD) will be done.
Hon. Sakaja said,”When we say we want to be pro business it is not just passive to stop harassment of traders but we want to be proactive to facilitate and promote. There are many archaic laws including those that hamper creativity and innovation and we are going to weed those out.”
He added that business owners should focus on doing business instead of being chased around because of not adhering to the law.
Hon. Sakaja said,”Business people should spend more time doing business and not chasing compliance issues.”
