The Cabinet has approved elevation of two more towns to cities, bringing the number of Kenyan cities to five, including the capital Nairobi, Mombasa port city and Kisumu.

A brief from State House Thursday said that the Cabinet had agreed to amend the Urban Areas and Cities Act to provide for five cities.

Though the brief did not specify the targeted towns, Kenya’s largest urban centres behind Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu cities are Nakuru and Eldoret in that order.
