We welcome you to our site. Kindly feel free to share with us your thoughts. Ideas that add value will be appreciated. Ideas that want to make us improve our physical environment will be welcome. And more so, ideas that redirect us from the lost cause will be of immense value.

It is us who will improve the lot of our Environment, our Economy and make Kenya a Clean Country, where People join hands to work for our own Economic Emancipation and where Municipal Solid Waste Management is looked at as a resource, not as waste.

We need to set the standards in this region of the World and become the referral point in how a people can join hands and work for their own Economic Liberation, where waste can be used as raw material and become a source of employment for our people.

Our collective actions will surely make a difference. This is why in partnership with our Key Strategic Partners- The Public Service Transformation Department, the National Environment Management Authority, the Ministry of Environment and Mineral Resources, the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation,other key Ministries, the Local Authorities in Kenya, the Provincial Administration, A Better World, Akiba Uhaki Foundation and other Partners, we are moving deliberately in sensitizing and mobilizing Kenyans to work towards A Clean Kenya where waste is separated at source.

And this is why we are inviting Kenyans to join with us in The Clean Kenya Campaign and be a Member of Kimisho Sacco Society Ltd

CCNSET meets Prof PLO Lumumba at Integrity Centre

The CCNSET today paid a courtesy call on the Director of Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission at Integrity Centre.
From L-R; Petronila Nafula, Stephen Waweru, Odhiambo T Oketch, Elijah Agevi, PLO Lumumba, Rashmin Chitnis, Fred Kariuki, John Kihiu, Benerd Mutuku.

We are keen on enjoining the residents of Nairobi in the fight against corruption as we demand for efficient Service Delivery from Government officers.

This is part of an ongoing process that will see major players coming together to stand up against corruption and appreciate the achievers in our demand for Service Delivery. The Government and Council employees are not perfect, but what can we all do to ensure that they meet our expectations?

We have shared with him our experiences and expectations. We are optimistic that despite his team having been in office for only about three weeks now, they are equal to the task ahead and they need the tacit support of all Kenyans to make them achieve positive results.

We want to invite Kenyans to step forward and share with us their concerns. We will make sure that those concerns are addressed by the Town Clerk- City Council of Nairobi, the Provincial Commissioner- Nairobi, the Director- Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission, the Commissioner of Police and any other relevant Government Officer.

It is our duty and we must remain vigilant in the fight against corruption. We must at the same time demand efficient Service Delivery from all Government and Council employees.

Let us unite and step forward for Mother Kenya. Together we shall rein in on the Lords of Impunity and in the process, we shall liberate Kenya from our past.

Peace and blessings as we stay with the issues.

CCNSET meets the Editorial Team at Nation Media Group

The City Council of Nairobi Stakeholders Evaluation Team-CCNSET, today in the morning made a courtesy call on the Editorial Director at the Nation Media Group Mr Joseph Odindo. Mr Odindo was joined by Mr. Julius Maina- the Managing Editor- Saturday Nation and Mr. Nick Wachira- the Managing Editor- The EastAfrican.

The team from CCNSET included Mr. Elijah Agevi, Pst Benedict Mutuku, Mr. John Kihiu, Mr. Steven Waweru, Mr. Fred Kariuli and was led by Mr. Odhiambo T Oketch. Ms Petronila Nafula joined us later.

Our discussions centred on the role of the residents of Nairobi in evaluating the performance of Government Officers in as much as Service Delivery is concerned. We are appreciative that the City Council of Nairobi has taken the lead role to involve stakeholders in evaluating their performance in line with the reforms that have been put in place by the Government. We are also appreciative that we have many officers who are equal to the task at the CCN.

But it is our responsibility to weed the chaff from the grain. We as the residents of Nairobi must put all Government Officers to task and demand efficient Service Delivery. This is what HE the President and the Rt Hon Prime Minister want of us and of the Government Officers. We must hence, in partnership with the media, play our part.

On behalf of the Stakeholders, I thanked the Nation Media Group for the spirited way in which they have stayed with the reforms agenda. I urged them to stay with the implementation process as they keep Kenyans informed of all that is taking place.

I also took the opportunity to thank Kenyans for voting peacefully for or against the Proposed Constitution. Now that Kenyans have spoken, the Government must move with speed to implement the wish of the people as they listen to the wishes of those who had a divergent opinion. After all, we are all Kenyans.

It was also our wish that the Stakeholders, being the consumers of services being rendered by the Government, must maintain a functional mandate to follow and monitor the implementation stages of the New Constitution are on track even as we demand service delivery from the Government. We can achieve this only through a structured partnership with the media. 

Mr. Odindo on his part was thankful for having met our team. He reiterated the editorial policy of the Nation Media Group of remaining truthful to the unfolding events in our country. He said the NMG will remain on track with the reforms agenda, and they will always keep the country informed at all times.

We took the opportunity to share with him the Report of our Evaluation Exercise at the City Council of Nairobi. It is our wish that we stop complaining about Service Delivery from Government Agencies. Let us engage with them for the good of Nairobi.
