The launch of the Bunge Tower in Nairobi on Thursday, 25 April 2024, marked a significant milestone in Kenya’s legislative landscape. President Ruto emphasized that with the provision of quality facilities to legislators, there is no excuse for delivering shoddy services.

Reflecting on the progress made since he entered politics in 1997, President Ruto recalled the challenges faced by leaders at that time, including the lack of offices for members of parliament (MPs). The president highlighted the transformation from working in private offices or car parking lots to occupying the Continental House under the leadership of the then Speaker of Parliament, Francis Ole Kaparo. President Ruto stated that the country expects world-class legislation and oversight because Kenya now has world-class facilities, urging parliament to rise to the occasion and deliver rigorous, effective, and representative legislation.

President Ruto expressed optimism about the potential for MPs to exhibit quality performance, given the resources available to them. He pledged his commitment to supporting Parliament in its duties to the Kenyan electorate.

President Ruto however cautioned against extravagance and waste of public resources, stressing the importance of diligent leadership and accountability among MPs. He emphasized that the building is not a monument to extravagance or intended to symbolize entitlement or impunity.

Bunge Towers will offer luxurious amenities for Kenyan legislators, including a gymnasium, beauty parlour, a restaurant, and committee rooms. An underground tunnel will link the offices with Parliament buildings for MPs’ security and comfort.
