President Uhuru unveils a bust of his father Mzee Jomo Kenyatta in Cuba
“Africa will forever cherish its relationship with Cuba. Together we will continue to forge mutually beneficial partnerships for the prosperity of our peoples and nations,” Uhuru said during the ceremony.. He added that Kenya will not take for granted the honour given to its founding father explaining that the Park recognises and celebrates the huge contributions Africa heroes made in the liberation struggle for the continent. Cuba’s Minister for Culture Abel Prieto termed the late president as an icon whose example of heroism inspired many to take up arms against the colonial masters. “It is worth noting that during the Cuban revolutionary war, Fidel Castro named one of the Brigades the ‘Mau Mau’ in honour of the freedom fighters in Kenya,” he said.
