President Uhuru Kenyatta has today signed three Bills into law, one of which redefines city status.

The Bills presented to the President at State House, Nairobi, are The Urban Areas and Cities (Amendment) Bill 2017, The Petroleum Bill 2017 and the Energy Bill 2017.

While assenting into law the Urban Areas and Cities Amendment Bill, President Kenyatta commended the Senate for acting with speed to pass the law, intended to accelerate efficient and quality services to wananchi.

The new law enables county governments to review the criteria provided for classifying an area as a city, municipality, town or market centre. Under the new law, the number of residents required for city status has been reduced from 500,000 to 250,000.

The law allows a county to declare an urban area a municipality if it has a resident population of at least 50,000 residents. An area qualifies as a town if it has at least 10,000 residents. A market centre requires 2,000 residents.

The law proposes the establishment of boards to govern and manage cities and municipalities and outlines specific requirements for appointment to the boards.


Ngong Kitengela are now cities.

More salaries to pay. More pigs at the trough. And Kenya has proven that we have neither the mechanisms nor the willpower to enforce accountability.
