Why lobby group want Mama Ngina Waterfront renamed

A lobby group is pushing for the renaming of Mama Ngina Waterfront Park in Mombasa to fit cultural and historical heritage.

The Okoa Mombasa Coalition presented a petition to the Mombasa County Assembly on Friday November 8,citing lack of public participation.

" Today we petitioned the Mombasa County Assembly to rename Mama Ngina Waterfront Park. We want structured public participation to come up with a name that reflects the historical and cultural heritage of Mombasa Mama Ngina does not, " the coalition said in a statement.

The move come weeks after President Uhuru Kenyatta reopened the revamped park.

The revamped Mama Ngina Waterfront Park is said to have costed Ksh 460 million.

The lobby is proposing the park to be renamed in honour of Kenya's freedom fighter  Mekatilili wa Menza
