Property owners within Central Business District (CBD) have two weeks to repaint and redecorate their premises or face legal action.Acting County Secretary Leboo Morintat said that upon expiry of the 14 days, necessary legal measures will be instituted to ensure the notice is fully complied with.
The notice, he said, is anchored by the law including county by-laws and the Public Health Cap 242 which talks of maintaining healthy and quality standards of general public health.
Mr Morintat, without giving any specific colour that the building owners should adopt, explained that the move to clean, repaint or redecorate is aimed at improving the aesthetic and beauty of the capital city.
This is to enhance the appeal of the city which has been globally recognized among the most dynamic, innovative resilient cities and is also a strategic economic and commercial hub of East and Central Africa.
“It is hereby notified to all property owners in the Nairobi CBD that they should clean, repaint or redecorate their buildings as required by law,” said Mr Morintat on Wednesday in a public notice published in one of the local dailies.
At the same time, the public notice also gave blanket approval to property owners to improve plot frontages – the area between a plot boundary and road kerb, a raised edge of a pavement which separates it from the road, with approved concrete blocks.
This will affect properties within and along Uhuru Highway, Nairobi River and Ring Road Pumwani, and Haile Selassie Avenue.
If successfully implemented, Nairobi will become the second county after Mombasa to effect such a directive.
