City Hall is the headquarters of the Nairobi County government, housing both the county executive and County Assembly, lacks proper washrooms making provision of proper sanitation a challenge.
Some of the projects such as rehabilitation of offices and corridors, as well as washroom had their contracts awarded during Governer Mike Sonkos tenure but works had not commenced.
City Hall was constructed in the 1950s along City Hall Way as the main offices of the Nairobi City Council. The building was later expanded in 1981 with the addition of the 13-storey City Hall Annex which now hosts most of offices for Nairobi County.
