A Chinese firm which won a tender to construct a Sh6 billion National Assembly office block now wants an application challenging the award heard by a three-judge bench.

China Jiangxi says the case raises weighty issues of jurisdiction as it had already been determined by another judge.

The application, filed in the High Court last week, says the case filed by Milicons Ltd and Svec Construction Ltd seeking to scrap the tender award is similar in facts with an earlier suit determined by the High Court.

High Court judge George Odunga in June upheld the award of the contract to China Jiangxi and dismissed a case by the Parliamentary Service Commission challenging the Public Procurement Administrative Review Board’s decision to award the tender to the Chinese firm.

indeed

We just need to reduce the number of senators and Mps the people in the counties are already overrepresented.That's why many mps feel threatened by governors because they will be able to effectively work with the people.

heh? where did you read 600M shillings? How can you possibly build a 26 story 'ultra modern' building for about 4 Million pounds?

This is a waste of money

Senate was a waste of ideas, time and money; county governments success depends on the structures

Makaratasi mengi na maendeleo hakuna!! Kila mtu wants to eat. Why won't they eat what is there's and get satisfied with that? It's greed from top to bottom, in the end the poor are dying right, left and center in accidents, crime, hunger...what's the government there for, including these courts if they cannot protect public good?

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 16 – A four year plan to construct an ultra-modern 27 storey office block to house the expanded 418-member legislature kicked off on Thursday after the Parliamentary Service Commission formally handed over the project to a Chinese firm, China Jiangxi Construction Company.

The proposed building which also includes four basement parking floors and a tunnel connecting to both chambers of Parliament will be erected on a one-acre plot between Continental House and County Hall in Nairobi at a cost of Sh5.8 billion shillings.

The plot was allocated to Parliament by the government in 2000.

Speaking during the handing over ceremony, Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi said the building will accommodate the bi-cameral Parliament by creating additional committee rooms and other facilities.

“I think with the completion of this then Parliament as constituted under the Constitution will now have sufficient space within which to perform its various functions,” he said.

Here's what the Ethiopian Parliament is going to look like. Hopefully this 27 floor tower will be as nice as this.

The ET project has character. I hope the Kenyan tower will not be a basic rectangle with grey concrete siding.

Nope, it's an architectural consortium made up of Treurniet Architectuur, Michiel Clercx Architectuur, Addis Mebratu and S7 Architects PLC
