State House will inaugurate the renovated Uhuru and Central Park on the evening of Monday, September 12, the eve of the swearing-in of President-elect William Ruto.
Speak with TBEN.co.kea high-ranking source at the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) indicated that the event will be held in the park between 7:00 PM and 8:00 PM.
The city’s skyline will be lit up with fireworks to mark the park’s official inauguration – an event that will be run solely by State House.
However, our source clarified that the opening of the park would be in phases to allow the NMS to complete construction of some parts of the historic park.

“It has been notified for the general information of the public that there will be a fireworks extravaganza at Uhuru Park on Monday 12th Monday from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM in celebration of the inauguration of Uhuru & Central Park.
“Members of the public are advised to anticipate and enjoy the screening,” said a message from NMS led by Major General Mohammed Badi.
The announcement was made to warn city residents of the impending feature to avoid panic.
At the end of August, NMS released the spectacular images of the renovated park that has been under renovation since 2021.
The revamped park has a well-maintained lush green garden with well-paved walkways and well-appointed sitting areas.
In addition, the NMS provided more benches in different parts of the park so that TBEN have rest areas when visiting the recreation facility.
“The renewed green spaces will play a vital role in environmental pollution management, the socio-economic development of the nation and the physical well-being of citizens.
“The rehabilitation works, coming 52 years after the green spaces were first opened to the public, included the construction of a playground, outdoor gym, jogging paths, botanical trails, an outdoor library and a skate park,” the NMS statement said at the time. .
Also installed in the park is an old plane that NMS boss General Mohamed Badi said would be converted into a high-end hotel during an August 4 interview.
