Even before Governor Mike Sonko officially handed over key departments at City Hall to National Government, his famed lion sculptures seem to have also thrown in the towel.

One of the sculptures, which had occupied the entrance to the Governor’s City Hall office, was on Tuesday night burnt by unknown people.

The sculptures have as a result have been removed from the site.

The same sculptures were also mounted at the University Way-Uhuru Highway roundabout early last year.

The cartoon-like sculptures were the works of Mr Oshoto Ondula, the man who had been commissioned by the Nairobi County government for most of the artwork being seen around the city in Mr Sonko’s beautification project.
