The Tom Mboya Monument is situated along the Moi Avenue of Nairobi Kenya. It was raised in 2011 in the honor of Tom Mboya, a Kenyan Minister who was dispatched in 1969. Standing in the proximity of twenty meters from where the late Hon. Tom Mboya was assassinated, the landmark is around the most recent architecture in the Nairobi CBD. Tom Mboya's statue is truly tall and stands at the very least ten meters starting from the base. Moreover, with scarcely less than six months since its revealing, the landmark's area has turned out to be a standout amongst the most famous points of visit which are right now accessible inside the Nairobi CBD. Mboya was a standout amongst the most conspicuous figures in Kenya's battle for freedom, and he viably took control of patriotic resistance to the British guideline when a significant number of its different guides, incorporating Jomo Kenyatta, were detained. He turned into the equity pastor in the post autonomy Kenyatta government and was the commercial concerns’ advisor around the time of his dispatching. The flamingos at the base of the figure represents his setting up the Airlift Africa venture, which was a way-through that helped East African people study in the United States. President Barack Obama’s father had been one of the influential Airlift supporters.
