The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is looking to relocate its headquarters from Nairobi Central Business District (CBD).

Currently, the agency is located at the Anniversary Towers with the commission stating that there is a lack of enough space.

Through a tender notice on Wednesday, the agency revealed that it is looking for a parcel of land that is on stable land, located at least 20 kilometers away from CBD.

It also wants a parcel of land that is easily accessible by road networks with a title deed without any obstructions.

“The size of the land should be approximately five acres and should be on stable ground. The gradient of the land should not be steep,” the commission said.
