“Give our leaders time to deliver and only judge after the final product,” he said.

Ogolla refuted claims that the lions had been removed stating that they were just upgrading to a better structure.

“The statue was subject to improvements on site and so as I initially requested us to give the team time as the sculptor improves the statue on site.This was because of the delicate manner of the statue and so it was just a matter of time and so as at now the final touches have been done and the statue is now on point,” he said.
