The Mombasa cement  Company  has removed  the  famous iconic wildlife sculptures dotted across  six key  locations within Mombasa  following a row  with the Mombasa  County Government .

The  iconic wildlife sculptures donated  by Mombasa Cement Company owner Mr Hasmukh Patel  were removed  from  Lebanon , Digo Road, Nyerere, Makupa, Port and Ganjoini areas .

The  six  areas  had  previously  been used  as  illegal dumpsites  until Mr Patel of The Mombasa Cement Company got into an agreement  with the  County government of Mombasa under the First Governor  Hassan Joho to rehabilitate  the sites  converting them into beautiful sceneries and tourist attraction sites.

The  row  between the County Government of  Mombasa  and  Mombasa cement is  informed by a directive from the Mombasa County Executive for Health Swabah Ahmed, that directed chief officers of Medical Services and Coast General Hospital  not to accept any financial assistance or donations given to any health facility in the county by the said  business  mogul .

The Mombasa Cement Company has  over  the years  footed hospital and funeral bills for hundreds of   the less fortunate patients within the Coastal region.

The  iconic Sculptures  have since been moved to the neighbouring county of Kilifi.

“We have had discussions with the Kilifi County Government and Governor Gideon Mung’aro is open to the idea of us moving the sculptures there. We are excited about the new partnership,”said the company’s relations officer Mr Imtiaz Sayani.
