Through his official Instagram page, he bashed those opposing renovation of the street on the basis of prostitution business saying Nairobi is not Sodom and Gomorrah.
” Hao wengine wanao complain hapa kwa hii gazeti, wafanye biashara zao kwa ma lodgings and not openly kwa streets. Nairobi hapana Sodom na Gomorrah, we are a God-fearing county,” he said.
The flamboyant Governor also opened up on the exact amount of money used to renovate the street. He dismissed claims going around that it coated the county Ksh 20 million to reconstruct the street.
“The county spent less than 10.4 million for the transformation of Luthuli Avenue and not 24 million as reported by some engineers and a section of the media. Also the @unitednations offered the technical and design support.” He added.
