In terms of elegance and serenity, the Deputy President's palatial residence in Karen appears to dwarf State House. The Karen residence's ambience is reminiscent of a billionaire's playground in Ibiza.
Kibaki's government spent 450 million shillings on DP Ruto's official mansion in Karen, which was erected on a 10-acre plot of land. The mansion was supposed to be home to then-Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka, but the Wiper leader never moved in.
In 2013, when the Jubilee government took office, Deputy President William Ruto moved into the 450 million mansion.
The house has an office building, a garage, a swimming pool, a gazebo, a generator house, a staff residence, and a comptroller's unit, among other amenities that make the DP and his family feel at ease.
