Dear President Ruto,

With great honor i write this open letter to you on the intended disposal of the KICC. This is a heartfelt appeal to you emphasizing on the moral and ethical considerations in the stewardship of such national icons.

The Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), a symbol of Kenya’s pride and progress, embodies a rich history and significance.

The 32-story structure in Nairobi’s City Square was commissioned in 1967 by Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, designed by architect Karl Henrik Nostvik alongside David Mutiso in the shape of the d**k of a donkey.

The idea of selling such a monumental and historic structure is beyond repugnant; it’s akin to selling a piece of the nation’s soul or in a home selling your father’s grave.

The KICC isn’t just a building; it’s a testament to Kenya’s journey, a beacon of its aspirations, and a symbol of its identity, every villager young and old in Kenya which we all are, has taken a picture there.

Selling it would not only be a loss of a significant landmark but also a blow to the nation’s heritage and pride.

Like the Washington Monument or the Statue of Liberty in the USA, the KICC is an icon that transcends mere architecture.

It represents the collective memory, achievements, and aspirations of our people, the 42 tribes in Kenya.

The very thought of its sale, especially for financial gain, is not just a matter of economic transaction but a profound moral and ethical dilemma. It strikes at the heart of what makes a nation’s identity and legacy.

There are things in life that lack a price, KICC in kenya stands at the top of that list, it’s priceless.

In times of challenging leadership and governance, such icons serve as reminders of a country’s enduring values and history.

They are not just structures but repositories of national pride and collective memory.

The KICC, with its significant role in Kenya’s narrative, should be preserved as a legacy for future generations, a symbol of the nation’s resilience, ambition, and spirit.
