Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta last evening expressed his satisfaction with the ongoing redevelopment of Mama Drive into a modern recreation park.
The President visited the Shs 460 million waterfront project which he commissioned in January this year to asses its progress.
The transformation of Mama Ngina Drive into a modern public facility is part of ongoing efforts to restore the glory of Mombasa as a leading tourist destination in the region.
Today morning, the President accompanied by Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho visited the ongoing beautification exercise at Kibarani along the Makupa Causeway.
The beautification project involved the decommissioning and rehabilitation of the former Kibarani dumpsite into a public park.
For years, the Kibarani dumpsite was an eyesore and a public health concern to residents and visitors driving into Mombasa because of its location right at the gateway into the city.
The President said he was impressed by the transformation and encouraged the County Government of Mombasa to improve other public spaces across the city.
