Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has banned any meetings in Nairobi that will be organized by Teams Tanga Tanga and Kieleweke.
Sonko who accompanied President Uhuru Kenyatta spoke in Nairobi’s Mowlem Estate during the commissioning of the New KCC Dandora factory.
The factory is meant to increase milk production and supply in the country.
He said politicians allied to the two teams have started early campaigns which is derailing service delivery and retarding development.
President Uhuru Kenyatta also called on Politicians to desist from early campaigns.
Uhuru asked leaders to channel their energies towards development and supporting the Big Four agenda.
The President said he will continue reviving factories and launching new projects across the country as other leaders waste time politicking.
“We were in Eldoret and Nyahururu and we are now in Nairobi for this project. We are doing this because of the unity we have achieved. That is why we are saying that people should focus on development and not sideshows,” Uhuru said.
Uhuru declared support for Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko in his efforts to create job opportunities for youth through various projects.
The two leaders on Saturday morning promised to channel more resources to development.
They said there is need to create more job opportunities.
“We know that our youth are still facing challenges and that is why we have to work together by investing more in such projects that will give us the opportunities we want,” Uhuru said.
The President commended the Governor on the ongoing renovation of markets and other job creation initiatives in areas perceived to be crime hit, like Dandora.
“Such projects will help us and they are important for young people like you,” Uhuru said.
Governor Sonko hailed the President for commissioning the project, adding that the county has more untapped potential for more factories.
The Governor said the reopening of the factory will open up the area to more trade apart from making it safer for investors.
The governor said through the good working relationship between him and the President, the county has managed to get four more fire stations.
Sonko said the County has revoked approvals of all structures along the main road connecting to the new factory from Kangundo road.
The factory is expected to create 400 jobs.
It is set to produce 160,000 litres of milk per day.
Trade Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya said the factory has the potential to produce 300,000 litres per day.
Over 2,000 farmers from neighboring counties and within Nairobi attended the event.
