In our meeting this morning with Prof Karega Mutahi, the Permanent Secretary Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and Ministry of Local Government, he challenged us to visit Golf Course Estate Phase 2 and confirm if the Estate meets our standard.
This is the first impression as you pass the main gates to Golf Course Phase 2 Estate in Nairobi
He was convinced that Golf Course Phase 2 is the Cleanest in Kenya. We took the challenge and we can now confirm; Golf Course Phase 2 is indeed very clean. We asked a few residents what their secrets were and they told us; discipline. We want to believe that all Kenyans can live to the same standards.
The residents decided that they can do it, and in so doing, made their first Journey of Hope towards a Clean Kenya by planting trees, flowers and coming together to pool resources that pay for garbage collection and security.

We at KCDN are impressed and in the spirit of a Clean Kenya Starts With Me, Golf Course Estate Ph 2 wins our Cleanest Award for the Month of February. It is important to note that Nyayo Embakasi Estate was our first Award Winners in October 2011 followed by Prudential Estate in December 2011.
In our meeting with Prof Mutahi, he was impressed with what we have so far done with The Monthly Nationwide Clean-up Campaign across Kenya and promised that the Ministry will be major players in The Litter Less Kenya at 50 Campaign. To this extent, he accepted that he together with the PS for Environment and Mineral Resources will play Host Principals to the Programme.
Similar sentiments also came from Amb Phillip Richard Owade- Secretary- Local Authorities Administration at the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and Ministry of Local Government whom we also paid a courtesy call on this morning.
We will keep inviting your support, partnership and participation towards a Clean Kenya.
Let us all roll our sleeves and work for a Clean Kenya. If you want to view more of these photos, please visit our Facebook Page; Monthly Nationwide Clean up Campaign
