They are going to create a flyover over the Globe Roundabout. The Globe Roundabout should have been converted into a green space.
My exact thoughts, and include a lake since nairobi river passes right through it.
Half of the roundabout was turned into a matatu terminus while the other half has been fenced off for this project. Though I guess the flyover project will still leave a large green space in this other half when its complete.

I dont think its even possible to have a lake here Lol. Though The river nowadays is so clean and the banks so green its shocking when I look at it and remember how it once was.

Why not? The river can be dammed.
