The exhibition will showcase family photos, documents, diaries and personal memos of the former heads of state.
Rare moment for Kenyans as State House plans to hold major event for ex-presidents
State House is planning an exhibition where the personal lives, tribulations and successes of former presidents will be showcased.
Munira Mohamed, the head of the Presidential Library and Museum stated: The temporary exhibition slated for October, will showcase a condensed version of the evolution of the presidency.
According to the PLM head, the platform is expected to open a conversation on how and what Kenyans would like to experience in the Library and Museum.
Ms Munira pointed out that Kenya was adopting the concept to immortalize the country’s presidents works and words in a central place.
Presidency is accurately told
Countries like the United States of America, Tanzania, South Africa and Nigeria have such presidential libraries and museums.
Reports by the Nation newspaper indicated that questions have been raised as to whether each president should have their own library preferably at their home region.
To ensure the story of the presidency is accurately told, the team is working with the National Museums of Kenya, historians, and archivists to research and develop the institution.
President Uhuru Kenyatta, in June 2018, approved the establishment of the Presidential Library, Museum and Exhibition Centre, which is an institution for safeguarding the legacies of the nation’s presidents.
