• Senator Ledama asked that the government sells its properties in Nairobi and use a fraction of the money to build a parliament building in Narok County.

• Ledama also suggested that the ideal place the site would go up, Mosiro ward, which he described as a desert.

Narok senator Ledama Olekina has caused a stir online after he proposed to construct a parliament building in Kajiado.

His plan was quite confusing, with the politician asking the parliament of Kenya to sell some of its assets in Nairobi so as to decongest the city.

He also noted that part of the returns would be used to build a parliament building in Narok County.

Ledama also suggested the ideal place the site would go up was Mosiro ward, which he described as a desert.

"Parliament of Kenya should sell all its expensive buildings decongest Nairobi then use a fraction of its proceeds to build a parliament city in Kajiado/ Narok county - preferably Mosiro Ward which is a desert.  We can drive to the city Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to debate." Ledama wrote on his official Twitter handle.
