Uhuru park will be available free of charge-Sakaja declares.


Kenyans will be required to produce their national identity cards to access the newly renovated Uhuru Park.

Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja Thursday said that the IDs will aid in maintaining security and also keep a record of who is accessing the park.

When you come in, you will be able to leave your ID. This is for us to make sure we know who is coming in so that we can block the wrong people lazing around in that place,” he said.

The county boss was speaking during his State of the County address at the Nairobi County Assembly.

Going further, the Governor revealed that there will be a special team which will be deployed at the Park consisting of Inspectorate officers and officers from the National Police Service.

“The special team will guard the park 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year,” Sakaja said.

To give Kenyans easy access, Uhuru Park will be free to everyone.

Governor Sakaja explained that there were earlier proposals to charge Nairobians to use Uhuru Park, but he declined.

Uhuru Park’s renovation is complete and will be available to the public free of charge. Earlier, there were proposals to charge Nairobians to use Uhuru Park. Remembering the number of times that jobless people would go there at lunchtime to eat an air burger as you listen to a pastor, lie on the grass as you think about your problems, would not allow me to charge a shilling on Kenyans who want to use Uhuru Park’

Governor Sakaja:

Governor Sakaja however said that Central park will also be available but at a small fee due to the structure and infrastructure in it.
