New Senate Parliament to be completed by July

11 February 2014, 10:33 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Senators will have to wait until July 2014 to occupy their new Parliament which is currently under refurbishment by a Chinese company.

The Ministry of Public Works Acting Secretary, Moses Nyamusa noted that the Parliament's delay to go on recess last year interfered with the contractor’s completion calendar as they too were forced to suspend the construction for some time.

Nyamusa reiterated that the KES 2.2 billion Upper House construction project involves the refurbishment and renovation of the senators’ chambers, installation of new lifts, staff offices and additional floors.

He added that the Senators’ new square will have a parking space that accommodates over 300 vehicles, a modern canteen and the senators' changing rooms.

Nyamusa remained optimistic that the contractor will finish the task at the stipulated time for the senators to occupy and carry on with their constitutional legislative mandates.

Milicon’s Construction Company Chief Engineer, Sheik Patel said that it was difficult to go on with the construction since parliamentarians were still occupying some of the premises under renovation. He asserted that they are working round the clock to ensure the work is completed before July.

The Senate currently carries out its House activities from the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).
