Governor Sonko has stated that no group will be given access to Uhuru park on January 30. This statement was made in response to the medical camp planned by Moses Kuria and the Nairobi business community.
“No group will be allowed into Uhuru Park as we are currently doing renovations at the facility to improve its terraces and grass,the contractor is already on the ground,” the governor said.
The group had said that they had booked the venue to conduct free circumcision of street boys.
The National Super alliance (NASA) brigade had also called on their supporters to flood the venue to attend the swearing in ceremony of Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka as the People’s president.
Governor Mike Sonko confirmed that NASA, a church and the Nairobi business community had booked the venue for the same day.
He said that the earlier groups had even paid and issued with receipts but he insisted that the circular for the closure of the venue still stands and no group will be allowed into the facility.
On Wednesday the county of Nairobi gave a notice of closure of Uhuru park which was to take place with immediate effect.
Following the closure Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro has demanded for the Sh.250000 that was paid to the county to book the venue. He said that Jubilee had paid the amount to secure the venue for the event.
