Free entry for youth to Nairobi National Park for next three days, Uhuru announces
Youth aged 17 years and below will be allowed to enter the Nairobi National Park for free for the next three days, President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced.
The youth will access the Park and be able to witness for themselves the biggest haul of ivory ever burnt by any Government in the world.
The ivory haul and rhino horns, which were set on fire by President Kenyatta this afternoon, will take at least three days to be completely consumed by the fire.
