The offer to assist Kenya in the construction of the new headquarters was made in 2021 during President Uhuru Kenyatta’s term.

At the time, the project was estimated to cost Ksh4 billion.

“China has supported Kenya’s national development agenda through extensive infrastructure development that has raised the stature of Kenya as a regional transport and communications hub.

“The government of China has also given Kenya a grant of over Ksh4 billion towards the construction of a new Ministry headquarters,” the Ministry stated then.

Over the years, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been hosted at the Old Treasury building. The Ministry was first hosted at the Office of the President before relocating to the Treasury building in 1980.
