Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has commended his Nairobi counterpart Mike Sonko for the ongoing beautification programme.
“We can work and make our two cities great. I’m impressed with the ongoing beautification in your city,” Joho told Sonko when he paid him a courtesy call at City Hall on Monday.
Joho promised to initiate the same exercise in his county.
He said he will establish inter-county relations between Mombasa and Nairobi for the benefit of residents of the two cities.
Nairobi and Mombasa are number one and two biggest contributors to Kenya’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) respectively.
On his part. Sonko pledged to work closely with Joho to ensure the two cities become the best to invest, live and work in.
“My administration is ready to work closely with your county government on matters relating to the environment and the blue economy,” said Sonko.
Later on, Sonko met with visiting African Heads of State attending the Blue Economy Conference at KICC.
