Uhuru Park closed to pave way for renovation

Uhuru and Central parks have been closed indefinitely to pave way for renovation.
 
This motion was moved by the Nairobi County Assembly Majority Leader Mr. Abdi Guyo on Tuesday asking for immediate closure of the parks since they had been neglected for years. According to him the parks had begun losing their significance and lost their glory. He asked the government to take action.
 
Guyo said that the renovation plans were proposed by the Nairobi Metropolitan Services.
 
"While NMS has invested heavily in in the renovation of Michuki Memorial Park, which investment has greatly boosted the usage of the of the park with greater numbers visiting the refurbished park on a daily basis, the same has not materialized for Uhuru Park and Central Park which remain in a state of disrepair" 
 
Nairobi MCAs requested General Mohammed Badi and Deputy Governor Ann Kananu to give notice to the public on their order of the closure of the parks. 
Nairobi County is supposed to take care of the public spaces such as Jevanjee Gardens, Uhuru Park, Central Park and Michuki Memorial Park
 

Uhuru Park is a recreational park that sits on a 12.9hectaere in Nairobi. It was opened by the late mzee Jomo Kenyatta on May 23 1969 and it contains an artificial lake, several national monuments such as of the Mau Mau freedom fighters' and an assembly ground which has become popular for skateboarding on weekends.
