Nairobi Governor Plants 38 Trees to Mark His 38th Birthday
Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has launched the planting of 3800 trees at Central Park in celebration of his 38th birthday.
According to the County Executive Committee Member [CECM] for Environment Maureen Njeri, Sakaja planted a total of 38 trees at the renovated Central Park officially opening the tree planting exercise that will be done in all the 17 sub-counties of Nairobi.
“This is the park where we will begin our campaign of planting trees to mark the governor’s birthday. This is in line with the national government initiative of planting ten billion trees in the next 10 years,” Njeri stated.
She says Sakaja is committed to ensuring the dry sub-counties in Nairobi are green.
“Every ward in Nairobi will have a session today of planting trees to mark my 38 years with 3800 trees planted across our target of one million trees,” she said.
The CEC members and a section of MCA who was present during the session wished Sakaja well.
Mlango Kubwa MCA Susan Makungu stated that they will support governor Sakaja to ensure the city is clean and green.
