See the Amazing Building owned by Uhuru’s Lawyer in Nairobi

An iconic building owned by President Uhuru Kenyatta's lawyer is set...

What you may not know is that the latest skyscraper to dot the beautiful Nairobi Skyline is owned by the First Community Bank, a bank partly owned by prominent Nairobi Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi.

FCB Mihrab will host the headquarters to First Community Bank, while the extra space will be leased to other businesses for office and retail use.

First Community Bank is one of the fastest growing banks and a pioneer in sharia-compliant banking in Kenya.


The FCB headquarters stands out with Arabic feel in the architecture. The name Mihrab is borrowed from the Arabic word for a space in the wall of a mosque, at the point nearest to Mecca, towards which the congregation faces to pray.

In a past interview, the wealthy lawyer revealed that he co-founded the bank with President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Legal adviser Abdikadir Mohammed.

Ahmednasir is a regular face in high-volatile legal cases and has been reported to be one of the best-paid lawyers in the country.

He recently represented President Uhuru Kenyatta at the Supreme Court in a petition where the recent Presidential election was nullified.
