When it comes to matters concerning cultural heritage, Kenya is among the top countries that embrace cultural diversity and a rich history of African tradition.
According to Citizen Television, the Nairobi Metropolitan Service is set to demolish the Famous memorial Estate located in Eastlands along Jogoo road.
According to Raila Odinga, the Houses set to be demolished should be considered as a National Heritage since it housed popular political figures in Kenya. Some of the political leaders include:
1. Kenya’s former Vice President Oginga Odinga.
2. Jomo Kenyatta the First president of Kenya.
3. The second President of Kenya Daniel Torotich Arap Moi.
4. The third president of Kenya Mwai Kibaki.
As per Evelyne Awino Ogola, "she won't stand and see the NMS demolish a house built in the 60's and replace them with modern sky scrapers.
The Goverment should restore the building and let it play as a tourist attractions both locals and foreigners.
Therefore, what do you think about this move by the Nairobi Metropolitan Service? Leave a comment, let's keep the discussion going.
