Judiciary Searches for New House for Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu

  • The Judiciary is seeking to acquire a palatial new home in Nairobi for Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu.

    A tender notice placed in local dailies offered a glimpse of some of the features the new house must have.

    First of all, it must be located eight to twelve kilometres from the City Centre, preferrably in posh estates such as Lavington, Kileleshwa, Muthangari and Kianda.

    The Judiciary is specifically looking for a five-bedroom house sitting on a one-acre parcel of land.

    The house must have a holding area capable of accomodating 650 people.

    It must also have a garage with space for at least two cars and an external, preferably shaded parking area for at least six cars.

    The minimum plinth area for the new house was set at 14,000 square feet located on different floors.

    The fully furnished house must also have facilities that include a swimming pool, bar counter and landscaped lawn with exotic trees.

    The judiciary wants to lease the property after a previous move to acquire a Sh310 house for the DCJ in Runda from former Machakos Senator Johnston Muthama failed.

    The home remains unoccupied as an investigation into the flouting of the procedures around the purchase continues.
