“Simple statue to a great figure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Located outside the National Archives, the Tom Mboya Statue remembers an important political figure in Kenya’s history. You can read about Mboya inside the archives, where a display chronicles his life. The statue is small and simple, a circular base around a pillar with the statue on the top. Locals line the benches nearby, although more as simply resting their feet than admiring the statue, I suspect. Combine a trip to the statue with a visit to the National Archives – both are very interesting.
