CREATING A SAFE HAVEN AT RUNGIRI
About the Film
Rungiri Dam in Kabete, formed out of a quarry left during the construction of Nairobi-Nakuru highway. And for many years, the dam has been infamous for suicides and killings. At the start of the Covid 19 lockdown in 2020, Friends of Rungiri, a youth-led initiative decided to change that narrative, turning the dam into a recreational facility for people to enjoy. Now visitors can come for picnic, or for boat ride, and in future go birding here.
