In a new plan, Sakaja approves the redevelopment of 18 Nairobi estates.

Following a meeting with members of the County Executive Committee (CEC) on Wednesday, March 22, Governor Johnson Sakaja approved a plan for the redevelopment of 18 estates in Nairobi.

The Nairobi City County Eastlands Urban Renewal Local Physical Development Plan was approved by the County Executive Committee before the revamp plan was implemented. The plan says that 18 Nairobi estates in the Eastland area will be redeveloped with a focus on fixing up houses, making transportation better, and using storm water management.

Sewerage management, energy, water supply, education, health, community facility enhancement, disaster management, heritage preservation, and general environmental management are all included in other plans. “It is a development framework envisaged to guide the redevelopment process in Eastlands, an area covering 18 government estates and surrounding private neighborhoods,” read a portion of the communiqué from the meeting of members of the Nairobi County Executive Committee.

It went on to say that “Eastleigh 1st Avenue and Nairobi River to the north, Outer Ring Road to the east, the CBD and Embakasi railway line to the south, and Ring Road Ngara, Muranga Roads to the west” define the project’s 12.64 square kilometers.



The plan included the estates of Maringo, Mbotela, Kaloleni, Bahati, Landhies, Jerusalem, Jericho, Lumumba, and Uhuru.

The Makongeni estate, Bondeni, Gorofani, Shauri Moyo, Ziwani, Starehe, Kariokor, Majengo, and Makadara were additional locations.

In the housing sector, Sakaja’s administration sought to address informal structures, encroachments into public spaces, the housing deficit, and the depreciation of housing and infrastructure networks.

The Nairobi City County Eastlands Urban Renewal Local Physical Development Plan also includes the expansion of major corridors to support various infrastructure and service enhancements.

Parking facilities, new passenger and freight terminals, road expansion, and the creation of missing link roads were all suggested. In order to enhance the sewage management system prior to offloading into the main city trunk sewer, sewerage pre-treatment sites will also be constructed when the redevelopment begins.

The Nairobi City County Eastlands Urban Renewal Local Physical Development Plan suggested working with various government agencies to preserve heritage centers in addition to improving infrastructure and social amenities.

Further, Sakaja’s Region Chief Advisory group individuals embraced the notice on laying out and operationalising wards. Each borough in charge of a cluster of sub-counties within specifically designated areas would be led by a manager.
