Mbagathi road has now been renamed to Raila Odinga way after Members of parliament passed a motion to do so.

The Nairobi city County property addressing and street naming policy has named the road after Raila Odinga aiming to improve ease of doing business and movement particularly e-commerce growth and development.

On Tuesday 12th October, Nairobi members of county assembly had passed a motion calling for renaming Mbagathi way after ODM leader Raila Odinga.

Minority whip Peter Imwatok introduced the motion, saying deserving leaders should be recognized while they are alive, not when they die.

He said, Raila, a presidential aspirant, has greatly improved the democratic and economic development of Kenya.

“He fought during this period of greater democratic space, good governance, rule of law and development of infrastructure against many odds, including detention without trial for 10 years” Imwatok said.
