The Nairobi Metropolitan Service (NMS) is set to  offer free Wifi for city residents in a programme that NMS Director-General Mohamed Badi says is in a bid to modernize and improve parks within the capital city’s county.

Badi says the residents in Nairobi will be able to access free Wifi in green spaces including Michuki Park, City Park, Central and Uhuru Parks, Jevanjee Gardens, Jamhuri Park and Ngong Road Forest.

According to Badi, NMS has also been repairing and replacing streetlights within Nairobi and upgrading them to a smart light system. So far, 50,000 street lights have been repaired since the NMS took over the four functions of Health, Transport, Public works and Planning and Development Services.
