President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday met with his Highness the Aga Khan and discussed a project that will be implemented at Nairobi's City Park.

Speaking at State House on Friday, Uhuru stated that the initiative was geared towards enhancing the quality of life of Nairobi residents.

According to a statement released by State House spokesperson Manoah Esipisu the project is set to restore Nairobi City Park to its past glory as the "Green Jewel ofNairobi".

Aga Khan is the current Imam of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims.

City Park was established in 1921 as a zoological garden but later declared a public park in 1925.

Much like other green spaces in the city, it has not spared encroachment by land grabbers.
