THE Nairobi government has completed the beautification of the city ahead of US President Barack Obama’s visit Friday. More than 500 youths had been hired to unclog drainage, clear bushes and cut grass on major roads.
“The team cleaning the city is from the National Youth Service. The county made special arrangements with the national government, which agreed to train them for us.
I can say they are volunteering,” Environment chief officer Leah Oyake told the Star.
Urban Green Landscapers contractors have laid concrete slabs on both sides of the flower beds on Mombasa Road.
“We have constructed undulating contours, grass and flower beds, complete with pebble rocks on the sides from Waiyaki Way to the airport. The same has happened on Lang’ata Road,” a worker told the Star Newspaper in Nairobi.
Numerous billboards welcoming Obama have also been put up. Here are the pictures:
