  • Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja, on Thursday,  February 23, launched the Nairobi Physical Addressing and Street Naming system, a project first implemented in East Africa by Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame. 

    Speaking at City Hall, Sakaja confirmed that he received the developers’ servers and logs and that the system was officially rolled out.

    The new development will put Nairobi on the map, the second after Kigali in Rwanda. 

    He intimated that global search engine company, Google, would also be incorporated to ensure the system is fully functional.

    “We are also closely working with Google to make it easier to identify and locate businesses, homes and landmarks for ease of e-commerce,” Sakaja stated.

    The county chief explained further that the system would help improve the efficiency of service delivery in the capital city.

    Nairobi was thus divided into five administrative boroughs in which the system would be implemented systematically in phases.

    “The physical address system will help the county government in the planning and provision of amenities for our city residents,” he added.

    In addition, the new system would also allow for emergency services such as firefighting and medical services to be rendered to the citizens.

    Notably, he revealed that the residents would be called upon to suggest how the homes, buildings and residences would be named.

    Sakaja added that the naming would begin in the Central Business District (CBD), where most streets and lanes have already been labelled.

    “The property owners will be told the property number and the physical address system so that those businesses that are ready will go ahead with the naming of their properties for their customers to easily access them,” Sakaja explained.
