Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho has bagged international recognition for his urban transformative initiative.
Joho has been recognized by the Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative- TUMI that focuses more on urban infrastructural development in various major cities worldwide.
According to TUMI, Joho clearly understands the transport and social-economic aspect of Mombasa thus indulging in improving the safety of pedestrians within Mombasa City.
“Mobility and safety projects remain the Governor’s priority especially after initiating wider footpaths within the tourists’ resort city of Mombasa,” read part of the TUMI statement.
The tabletop crossing paths have reduced pedestrian fatalities according to the international organization.
The bicycle parking and street lights guarantee Mombasa dwellers and tourists security.
“The red carpet for pedestrians have simply upgraded the walkways in the Central Business District-CBD and the relocation of car parking spaces to pedestrians are some of the aspects the international urban cities development organization is looking at,” said the statement.
