Kenya Vice President's Official Residence Complete, at a Cost of Sh400 Million

Amid the wrangles in the G7 group, there is at least one place where the Vice President is being awaited with bated breath - and that is at his new house put up by the Government in Karen. The residence is partially ready for occupation but a parliamentary watchdog is raising key questions about the money spent on it.

It is emerging that the project will cost the taxpayer an extra 200 million shillings above the budgeted figure. However, as NTV's Brenda Wanga reports, the contractor says the VP is free to move into the office section as soon as next week.

I like the house. I'm an interior designer. I have a company by the name "Better Homes and Beauty" where i mostly specialize in curtain making. Can you please give me the job of making some classic window treatments to the Vice President's new home?
