LOOK AT HOW LOCAL ARTISTS ARE DESTROYING KENYA’S GOOD IMAGE
Kenyan local artists have for a very long time been struggling to reach the limelight of fame but just a few have so far managed to showcase their capabilities and reasons as to why they deem fit. However, a burning issue has risen as to why graffiti’s are almost everywhere…..??
Graffiti may erode the world’s heritage status of
the Fort Jesus monument in Mombasa County,
experts have warned.
National Museums of Kenya Senior Curator Sadu
Rashid said visiting couples scribble their names
on the walls of the monument, defacing the
finely crafted ancient buildings.
“Graffiti is one of the major challenges we are
facing. It is mostly done by couples and

the Fourth Annual Curators Meeting (ANCUM)
in Meru Town.
She said Fort Jesus holds an archive of human

handiwork on the buildings to stop.

insecurity, travel warnings and global warming
