Fort Jesus on the verge of collapse, says Museums chief

22 July 2015, 14:12 William Korir

Nairobi - Fort Jesus, a world heritage site is on the verge of collapse due to lack of funds to maintain it, National Museums of Kenya boss Mzalendo Kibunja has said.

Kibunja told a Parliamentary Committee that the lack of funds to maintain the site have led to its close to collapse, with Kibunja saying that it is close to sinking in the Indian Ocean.

" Fort Jesus is on the verge of collapse. It is close to sinking into the ocean," he told the Public Investments Committee Wednesday.

Kibunja said that the site needed as much as KES 100 million to return Fort Jesus into its normal state but that only KES 20 million had been allocated.

" We only have KES 20 million, which is not even close to enough," he stated.

Kibunja also said that the National Museums has a debt of KES 800 million and is on the verge of insolvency.

He said that the situation has arisen after some donors the parastatal used to rely on to manage historical sites and fund projects withdrew due to financial mismanagement.

" Its a big problem. Unless we have a serious injection of cash, we will risk being insolvent," he added.

Fort Jesus was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation UNESCO.

He also said that an ongoing audit would reveal the extent of the damage at the parastatal and possibly the persons who have misappropriated funds.
