NAIROBI - The National Museums of Kenya in partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization launched an open digital library for indigenous games funded by the Chinese firm Tencent Holdings Ltd on Monday.

Kenyan officials say digitization of traditional games is part of a broader strategy to preserve the country's rich cultural heritage and disseminate it to future generations in an efficient way.

"This country has a huge repository of traditional games, which should be preserved in a digital format for easier reference by the next generation," says Mzalendo Kibunjia, director-general of the National Museums of Kenya.
