Uhuru confers Nakuru Municipality with a charter sealing its city status after years of pursuit

1st December, 2021

Nakuru has officially joined Nairobi, Mombasa, and Kisumu in the city rank. President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday, December 1, awarded a charter to Nakuru Municipality, sealing its city status after years of pursuit. “Nakuru County Assembly placed a desire to have a city status [in 2018]. The desire was approved by the municipality, county executive committee, and the county assembly, then handed to the Senate.

[With all legal criteria satisfied on June 3, [2021], the Senate approved the application and recommendations to give Nakuru a city status,” the president said during his speech at the Nyayo Gardens. Uhuru said he was happy to hand city status symbol instruments to Governor Lee Kinyanjui. The instruments are a logo, three flags (national, county, and city), and a seal of the city.
