Governor Mike Sonko has finally opted to remove the lion statue on University way in the Nairobi central business district after Kenyans on twitter said it was hideous.
The statue were removed on Friday night but the program director Joab Ogolla at City Hall defended the sculptures telling Kenyans to avoid side shows and and focus on the final product . he also asked Kenyans to let leaders do their job.
“Give our leaders time to deliver and only judge after the final product,” he said.
Ogolla refuted claims that the lions had been removed stating that they were just upgrading to a better structure.
“The statue was subject to improvements on site and so as I initially requested us to give the team time as the sculptor improves the statue on site.This was because of the delicate manner of the statue and so it was just a matter of time and so as at now the final touches have been done and the statue is now on point,” he said.
Kenyans on social media had on Wednesday made fun of the lion sculptures that had been erected at the roundabout and at te entrance of City hall.
