In Kenya and around the world, many towns and cities have some symbol that identifies it. a good example is Mombasa Kenya, which uses Elephant ivory as the identity. In Meru town, they use the ruling symbols of the first and the second presidents of Kenya to welcome you to the town.

Njuri Nceke street, one of the biggest streets after tom mbaya, has the symbol as displayed in the photo right at its start in between atr towers and mohammed moti. The symbol on the left is a club which the second president of Kenya(Daniel Moi) used during his time in office as his symbol. And on the right is ‘nkio’ which is made from a tall of a dead cow and it was used by the first president mzee Kenyatta. This was done in honour of the first and second presidents.
