A road sign named after vocal trade unionist Francis Atwoli was on Monday night set ablaze just days after a section of Kenyans protested a move by the Nairobi County Government to honour him.
In photos that have gone viral on social media, unidentified people used car tyres to set the road sign on fire.
The road in Kileleshwa, near Kenya High School, was formerly called Dik Dik Road.
There have been several attempts to bring down the sign since it was put up on May 27.
Activists led by Boniface Mwangi were among Kenyans who had challenged the move by Nairobi Governor Anne Kananu to honour the Central Organization of Trade Unions Secretary-General.
The Nairobi County leadership defended it self saying the sign was in honour of Atwoli’s service to Kenyan workers.
