“Artistic monument”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Great piece of Art work adding onto Nairobi's rich historical heritage attractions. Best day to wander around town is on a Sunday, less traffic both vehicles and people.

Great historical figure of our historical heritage. A must visit

“Great Piece of Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

A statue of a Kenyan fallen Hero from Nyanza, who was among the leaders spearheading for the independence of Kenya. It has a water fountain and a local football team known as Gor Mahia even use it as their shrine. They visit the statue to give thanks each time they win a match. They bath with the water as a sign of receiving blessings from their father, Tom Mboya.

“A little difficult to get to...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

This statue is located in the middle of a busy intersection in front of the National Archives, so you've got to weave through traffic to get to it, and it's often surrounded by crowds of people sitting on the walls to rest. Not always easy to photograph, but it's worth finding if you're interested in Kenya's history.

“Awesome Icon of Historic Pride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

It's a source of pride every time I walk by it as it reminds me of all those who fought for Kenya to be what it is today.

Down side though is that too many people hang around it making it an "Idler's Corner"
