Arusha. Kenyan Prime minister Raila Odinga and His Highness the Aga Khan will today witness the signing of an agreement between the government of Kenya and the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) for the rehabilitation of Nairobi City Park.
The Nairobi City Park Rehabilitation Funding and Technical Assistance Agreement (RFTA), as it is officially known, clears a way for the AKTC to begin works in the park starting in 2013, a statement released yesterday said. The model for the revised Nairobi City Park will also be unveiled today, marking a symbolic launch of the project.
“The primary objective of the project is to rehabilitate Nairobi’s City Park as a major metropolitan park that meets the highest standards in restoration, environmental practices and the financial self-sustainability,” the statement said.
