Nairobians Livid as Sonko Proposes Car-Free Days

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has proposed car-free days on Wednesday and Saturday in the city centre starting on February 1 in a bid to ease congestion. Parking lots will be transformed into open-air markets where traders can sell their wares. In December 2018, Sonko banned Public Service Vehicles from entering the CBD, then suspended the ban after protests.
