Freemasonry Construction Of State House And Other Iconic Buildings In Nairobi

A new occupant will move into the nation's most secure home today and stay there for the next five years.

Since taking office as Kenya's head of state in 2013, President Uhuru Kenyatta has resided at the state palace.

Following his inauguration today at Nairobi's Kasarani International Sports Centre, president-elect William Samoei Ruto will now assume the role of commander in chief.

State House was built in 1925 by a British architect by the name of J.A. Hoogterp, who also gave the go-ahead for the construction of the Supreme Court of Kenya and other famous buildings in Nairobi.

Freemasonry was used to build other buildings in the city, including the city hall and the railroad headquarters. The British architect was hired by Sir Edward Grigg, the colonial government's governor of Kenya at the time.
