NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 15 – A three-judge bench is Thursday afternoon scheduled to visit the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) to ascertain if the portrait of Founding President Jomo Kenyatta is indeed part of the 28-story building as argued by the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK).

Justices George Kimondo, Anthony Mrima and Asenath Ongeri will be at the KICC at 2.30pm.
