MPs To Finally Occupy Multi-Billion Bunge Towers From Tomorrow

Members of Parliament will finally be moving into the multi-billion Bunge Towers in Nairobi starting tomorrow, Thursday, April 11.

This is according to the National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula who said that the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) has established that offices for members will be ready for occupation by the end of the week.

“PSC is expediting the completion of the Bunge Tower in order to bridge the deficit in office accommodation for members,” said Watengula in a statement.

“Phase one will involve moving members from KICC to the Tower or other alternative accommodation. This will commence on Thursday 11th April 2024,” added Speaker Wetangula.

Also, members with offices in Harambee SACCO Plaza will immediately relocate to their new offices in the tower.

Phase two, which is set to commence on July 1, 2024, will have those MPs from Continental House occupy the tower. Wetangula emphasises that this will only apply to those who received allocations.

The building, sitting adjacent to parliament buildings, was meant to have been completed within just three and half years but nearly fourteen years later, the building has still been under construction.

Costing a whooping Ksh.9.26 billion to construct, the building comes with a set of luxurious amenities of Kenyan legislators including a gym, a beauty parlor and a restaurant.

It will also house committee rooms where members will conduct their businesses.

Linking the offices with parliament buildings is an underground tunnel, ostensibly for the security and comfort of MPs.
