Activists Propose New Name for Kondele Roundabout in Efforts Avert Riots Tag

Kondele is a household name in Kenya. Just like in many other occasions, Kondele Roundabout hits headlines ealier this year when chaos erupted at the interchange during a Ruto campaign rally. Few vehicles were badly hit with stones with then DP Ruto forced to end his rally pre maturely.

In light of such happenings, a group of activists within Kisumu City have petitioned the Kisumu County Government and the Kenya National Highways Authority ( KENHA ) to change the name of the spot that is known for protests, demonstrations, violence and riots.

According to the young activist, the renaming of Kondele Roundabout will help avert or rather end the 'riots' tag. "Changing the name will help Kondele change its reputation from a place or riots to a place of peace," one of the activists said.

Together, they have proposed a new name for Kondele Roundabout. They want the place renamed Kondele Peace Park. They have stated that other members of the public have a right to propose other names as lobbying continues.
