On Saturday, March 30, Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja allowed the public to once again use Uhuru Park.

Sakaja announced that the renovations at the city’s center were finished during the mass registration of Guard Force Numbers (GFN) for private security guards at the redesigned Uhuru Park.

“You are the first Kenyans (Private Security Guards) to enter this park at its opening, so we will never forget this day. Everyone can now access it,” Governor Sakaja Johnson declared.

Sakaja also reaffirmed that there will be no admission charge for Kenyans to enter the park. “The revamped green spaces will play a critical role in environmental pollution management, social-economic development of the nation as well as the physical well-being of citizens,” according to the NMS statement.


The Ministry of Defence oversaw the rehabilitation project, which was completed late and resulted in the park being closed to the public longer than expected until all work was completed. However, Nairobi County has been using the park for a number of events, such as the 2022 and 2023 Nairobi Festival.

However, because the contracted works are still unfinished, the reopening of Central Park will take longer. Kenya’s first president, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, gazetted and declared public access to Uhuru Park on May 23, 1969, symbolizing the nation’s independence.

The Mau-Mau Freedom Fighters Monument honors those who were tortured during the colonial era, and it is also located there.
