Parliament of Kenya Building

Buildings A and B, that have accommodated the Legislature since 1965, generally referred to as Parliament Buildings, are neatly woven together and visibly occupy and dominate the Parliament Square.

 

Parliament square is almost geometrically cut out of the City Square by four roads. The four roads are: City Hall Way to the north, facing Hotel Inter-continental; Parliament Road to the east, facing Kenyatta International Conference Centre and Sheria House; Harambee Avenue to the south facing Nairobi City Council’s County Hall; and along which also is Harambee

House in which Office of the President is located; and Uhuru Highway to the west, facing

Uhuru Park and up the Hill cluster of Government offices. In addition to Parliament Buildings and the parking areas for Members, guests and Members of staff; Parliament Square also accommodates, to the north, the Mausoleum containing the grave and the remains of the first and founding President of the Republic of Kenya, H.E. Mzee Jomo Kenyatta; and in the deep porch at the meeting point of Harambee Avenue and Uhuru Highway is a Bunge Staff Canteen, managed by an association of the staff of the Assembly.[www.ski-pix.com]
