The Parliament of Kenya is the bicameral legislature of Kenya.[3] Members of Parliament meet at the Parliament Buildings in Nairobi. It is made up of two houses: the Senate (upper house) and The National Assembly (lower house). Before 2013, the National Assembly was the unicameral parliament of the country.
