Kengeleni Monument

Kengeleni Monument 1

Situated near Kongowea Market on Nyali Rd,  just after the bridge, Kengelen Monument was at some point ‘the tallest structure’ for miles around it.  Built in 1886 at the pinnacle of the rampant slave trade in Eastern Africa it was an effective outdoor warning alarm set-off on the sighting of Arab Slaveships. Depending on how it rang, it sent out a variety of messages.
