Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga is not building a 1 billion 74 room home as claimed by The Star. Through his spokesman, Raila said that the building under construction will serve as the headquarters of the Green Outreach Foundation Africa and Raila Odinga Foundation.
Upon completion, the building will also provide conference, media, recreational and office facilities.
The Star had claimed that the 74 roomed palatial hill side building in Riat Kisumu will be the official residence of Raila. It further stated that the resident has 10 bedrooms, four expansive kitchens, two main conference rooms and an equal number of small conference rooms.
The residence would have served as Raila Odinga mini state house if he had clinched the presidency..
