The Judiciary is seeking to lease a five-bedroom house sitting on one-and-a-half acre parcel of land for Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu in high-end estates in Nairobi.

The Judiciary has invited bidders for the residential house that should be between eight and 12 kilometres away from the city centre with Lavington, Kilimani and Muthangari Kianda cited as preferred locations.

It has opted to lease over the purchase of a residence after the botched acquisition of a Sh310 million Runda home for Chief Justice from former Machakos Senator Johnston Muthama in 2013.

The house must have a holding area of at least 650 people, a garage of two cars and external parking for at-least six vehicles-preferably with shades as well as fully furnished rooms.

“The common/private room of the residential property must be fully furnished with the following minimum items, that must be elegantly designed and of a high quality,” reads part of the tender notice.

The lease of the five-bedroom home comes as the Sh310 million residence in Runda remains unoccupied over investigations on its irregular purchase.
