It is an honor to the LAte Tom mboya was assasinated...it is quite a magnificent status tho is has started being vandalised..a local football club usually uses it as a meeting point before and after their matches. It quite a monument especially for art lovers and monument

Its awesome we appreciate and commemorate the heroism and dedication of tom mboya. I simply think its on the wrong street. They could have picked a spot on his street. Reason I gave it an average rating

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

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.

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.
