President William Ruto says the government will build a State Lodge in Meru County, in his attempts to diversify the presidency in various regions and fostering closer engagement with the people.

President Ruto explained that his decision to construct a state lodge in Meru is rooted in his aspiration to be more accessible to the citizens and address their concerns without the need to frequent Nairobi.

Currently, Kenya has three official state houses, located in Nairobi, Mombasa, and Nakuru.

“I have secured government land here in Meru, and my intention is to establish a state lodge right here to address the nation’s issues in Meru,” he said.

Furthermore, the government has officially gazetted five State Lodges, situated in Kisumu, Sagana, Garissa, Kisii, and Kakamega.

If the president fulfills his commitment to construct an additional lodge in Meru, the tally of official residences designated for Kenya’s head of state will increase to nine, reflecting a notable expansion in official presidential accommodations
