You are currently viewing Mombasa Governor Aspirant passes the Environmental Sustainability Governance Test

Abdulswamad Sherriff Nassir, the two-time Member of Parliament for the Mvita constituency has passed an Environmental Sustainability Governance test done by Clean Up Kenya. This test looks at the published statements of the National Government Constituencies Development Fund for the last five years to gauge whether the funds were also used on environmental development projects as provided in the law.

Based on this data, Mombasa County received over KES 2.5 billion through the National Government Constituencies Development Fund in the last four financial years (2017-2021) and spent 1.5% of these funds on environmental development projects. This is below the provision of the law which is set at 2%.

Mvita constituency led by Abdulswamad Sherriff Nassir, however, exceeded the provision scoring 2.9 % with Likoni Constituency led by Mishi Mboko being ranked the worst with a score of 0.2%.

Based on this report, Clean Up Kenya, therefore, endorses Hon. Abdulswamad Sherriff Nassir for the position of Governor in the coming elections and looks forward to working with him to expand the public sanitation rights of the people of Mombasa if elected.

ABOUT CLEAN UP KENYA

Clean Up Kenya was established in 2015 to advocate for and promote sustainable public sanitation in Kenya. Since then we have become the de-facto national public sanitation advocacy brand. We are also experts in community mobilizing for cleanups. We have done numerous cleanups over the years, some of which have been attended by over 1000 volunteers on singular sites. At the core of our work is honest and actual engagement in communities – not PR events. We also run advocacy campaigns holding duty bodies, consumer brands, green-washing NGOs, and other stakeholders to account for unsustainable public sanitation in Kenya and the global South. We receive no funding for our work but collaborate with others on projects.
