Bulawayo's Third Street To Be Renamed After Uhuru Kenyatta

Bulawayo's Third Street To Be Renamed After Uhuru Kenyatta

The City of Bulawayo will rename 3rd Street after Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta despite him no longer coming to officially open the 2022 Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF).

In an interview with State media, Bulawayo mayor Councillor Solomon Mguni said that even though Kenyatta had cancelled his trip to Zimbabwe, the honour still remains. Mguni said:

We have done our formalities after receiving the request from the central government. This included identification of the road for renaming.

We are aware that President Kenyatta is no longer coming to Zimbabwe due to the death of former President Kibaki, but the honour still remains.

… 3rd Street which starts from Park Road to the intersection of Ascot Way and Esigodini Road and also a portion of Esigodini Road stretching from 3rd Street up to the intersection of Cecil Avenue and Esigodini Road.

Bulawayo Deputy Mayor, Cllr Mlandu Ncube had proposed that it was best to rename a road close to the ZITF grounds after the Kenyan leader.

Local Government and Public Works Minister July Moyo requested Bulawayo City Council to rename a road after Kenyatta in terms of the Names (Alteration) Act.

Kenyatta cancelled his visit to Zimbabwe for the trade fair following the death of Kenya’s former president, Mwai Kibaki.

Kibaki died last Thursday aged 90 and President Kenyatta declared a mourning period until his burial.
