Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has promised to turn the iconic Uhuru Park into a matatu terminus if elected Nairobi governor in the forthcoming 2017 elections.The senator disclosed this in an interview on Tuesday saying the park will be turned to bus terminus to for public transport vehicles.
Sonko said his main objective is to reduce the congestion witnessed every other day in the central business district and ease movement in the area..Sonko had arrived late for the interview on KTN Morning Express show by 20 minutes and explained he had been held up by the heavy traffic.
He revealed this after being probed on what he will do to ease congestion in the city centre if elected Nairobi governor in 2017.In his proposed plan, matatus from Eastlands will not be allowed to access the city centre but will instead drop-off passengers in Uhuru Park and return.
Sonko said he will soon release a documentary on all corrupt deals by the Nairobi city county and even claimed to have a pick-up full of documents that back up his corruption claims against Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero.
The senator made the declaration after getting visibly agitated at the lack of time to highlight the alleged corrupt activities of Governor Kidero.
