Kenyans may soon be able to view remains of the country’s founding father Jomo Kenyatta

29 April 2016, 20:33

Nairobi - Kenyans may soon be able to view the remains of the country’s founding father, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta if a new bill sails through.

Chuka Igambang’ombe Member of Parliament, Muthoki Njuki, who tabled the Kenyatta Mausoleum Bill 2016 in Parliament said he wanted the burial site of Kenyatta to become a tourist attraction and subsequently a source of revenue for the government.

Kenyatta died on August 22, 1978 at State House Mombasa, following which his remains were flown to Nairobi where he was buried after a week of national mourning, according to Daily Nation

Although he was buried at a public space on Parliament Buildings, the late president’s mausoleum remained a restricted place and was only brought to attention during his annual anniversaries.

Njuki was reported to have first drafted the motion in 2015, but it was yet to be debated and passed by National Assembly.
