Moses Wetangula holds a high echelon position in Kenya and is the 8th Speaker of the National Assembly. This means that he is automatically the chair of the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).

The PSC functions to ensure efficient operations of both houses by among other methods preparing annual parliamentary expenditures. Wetangula is also a member of the Committee on Finance and Judicial Operations Budget (JOB).

The 360° Court Apartments are also secured with a perimeter wall with an electric fence. There is availability of security personnel round the clock. The establishment offers cabro paved driveways and has a generator back-up for common areas.

Controversy

The real estate project has however been mired in controversy after Syokimau residents sued the developer in 2012 arguing that it sits on riparian land. Three years later, Justice L.N Mutende stopped the construction of two blocks (15 and 18).

He also gave a directive that the perimeter wall of the establishment be modified to ensure efficient drainage.

In February 2021, hundreds of people who had settled at 360 Apartments woke up to a rude shock following a night of heavy downpour which led to flooding in the area.

The floods led to losses as the water destroyed electronics, furniture and stationery especially for residents of the ground floors. It was feared that some cars had their engines knocked after they were engulfed in water.
