The occupants of the offices of the president and that of the Deputy President of Kenya always enjoy the privilege of residing in homes built by the government, or tax payers money for accuracy purposes. The Deputy President of Kenya for instance resides in a multi million shilling official residence situated at the leafy surbarbs of Karen, Nairobi.

According to pesacheck, a website that fact check web articles and social media posts to distinguish truth from error, kenya's Deputy president's official Residence had costed the taxpayer around 400 million Kenya shillings. DP Ruto and his family currently occupy the mansion in his capacity as the Deputy president of the Republic of Kenya.

Before the construction of the mansion, Nation Media had gained access to tender documents that revealed certain attributes of the palatial home. The house was to be designed in a manner that suits the person of a very high rank, such as the one who commands the capital's legislative arm. According to the tender papers that had been previously seen by Nation Media, the house was to be a five bedroom Mansion.

The building sits on at least a half an acre land and is equipped by a worker's quarter and a guard's house. The compound is also endowed by at least five packing lots and can accommodate a about 50 guests and dignitaries at any given time. This magnificent building remains the official Residence for whoever will ascend the rough political ladder to become the second most powerful figure in the country.

In an uncertain world with emerging challenges and new possibilities, it is very necessary for members of the executive arm of the government to have specific and elaborate official residences. These residences would act as reliable command centres in times of nationwide crisis.
