President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday evening inspected the ongoing construction of a 270-metre long wall to protect the cliff holding Fort Jesus World Heritage Site from sea erosion.

As part of the project, the Government is redeveloping the Fort Jesus seafront into a modern recreational park complete with a football pitch and amphitheater on land that was reclaimed from the Indian Ocean.

The Head of State was received at Fort Jesus by Sports, Heritage and Culture CS Amina Mohamed and Coast Regional Commissioner John Elungata among other senior Government officials.
