"Driving outside Central Police Station in Nairobi with my son this afternoon, he spots a road sign 'Harry Thuku Road'. He quickly tells me, 'Dad we are on the road of our great ancestor'. I ask, 'who?' He says, 'Harry Thuku'
Down the road I have to answer several questions on the relationship between our family and Harry Thuku.
That's a good reason why we should name our roads and institutions after the right people."

*Very true, but they were named right. I wonder why they are changed nowadays, it's kind this generation is full of jealous or something else is not right somewhere.
*Yes, sometimes I see names on our streets and roads that I don't even understand their meaning. For example Muktagarder street even writing the name is headache.
*Unfortunately our roads and national places of history are named after the colonial times home guards.
