Seems like there's quite a high demand for proper housing especially for the middle-class. Any idea where the referral hospital is being rumored to be constructed?

Eld is the home of most tenderprenuers. Lots of money to go around, plus of course the hardworking farmers.

You know that tenderpreneurs are the ones whose advertisements read like: "We sell the best air services on road projects" Tenderpreneurs are people who compete for tenders and deliver no services/goods for the money paid for such tenders they win. It's a very bad thing, it rewards lots of money for nothing done. It is not where our country wants to go and I would not want my children to learn this thing. It beats very basic human decency. It is theft in recorded notes.

Yes I know. Eld is home to a lot of cartels, genuine businessmen, athletes and farmers. I can confirm there is a lot of illicit cash in Eld as well as good money

Whatever happened to that Sergoit Golf Project? Was it a scam

The market wasn't ready for it. For it to work it needed either a corporate entity to buy the lot and build it as a recreation park or hotel to hire out the properties per day, month or year.

The project implementation model was that they sell out the properties quickly then build. Well sales didn't take off and therefore it stalled. Eldoret residents still prefer to buy their own land and build rather than invest here and await 100's more sales to start hearing of construction.

If it is to be revived then they must seek finances to build to completion and get better sales teams.

Eldoret witnesses rapid growth of shopping malls

..“The Africa Economic Zones Pearl River is setting up an industrial park which will have positive effect on the businesses,” said Dr Kogos.

The Sh200 billion park was launched last year and construction is expected to begin in August...

The external of the building has a great resemblance to Two rivers mall in Nairobi. Couldnt however take external photos.

Looks like its already a ghost mall just a short time after its opening. In a relatively small city with just a few malls you would expect excitement in a different level, but no!

Depends on what time/day the pictures were taken. Go to two rivers on a weekday before 5 and see how empty it is. Go on a weekend and you won't get parking

If you go to Rupa at 10 am on a weekday you'd find maybe twenty cars on the outside parking but go there that same day around 5pm and you may have trouble finding a parking spot

The photos were taken around 3.00pm on a Saturday two weeks ago. By the time I left at around 7.00, it was a beehive of activities.

Rupa is really trying to follow the Two Rivers model. They now have a lit synchronised fountain outside the main entrance.

According to GAZETTE NOTICE No. 10687. National Environment Management Authority invites members of the public to submit oral or written comments within thirty (30), to assist the Authority in the decision making the process of the plan by the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, to construct a new 4000 beds Multi-specialty (the Sh28 billion project) Teaching and Referral Hospital in Kiplombe, comprising an emergency area, 22No. general outpatient clinics on three floors, pediatric clinic areas, a five floor medical technology block comprising 15No. units, 6No. ward buildings with 36No. nursing units, administration office block, staff apartments, research development and innovation building, associated facilities and amenities.

If the plan by Mwale technology city is achieved and new MTRH multi-facility is achieved too, (considering that Oparanya is also building 700 bed capacity in Kakamega) the western region will be the preferred medical tourism region in the east and central africa and even in the whole of africa since the largest South Africa’s Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital has a total capacity of 3,400 beds.

There is a thread on the new MTRH. Follow the link below. I however have my doubts on Mwale Hospital.

A friend of mine visited the city and he sure told me its true, although he still have a long way to go. Still, if compared to stalled konza and tatu city that have been marketed for years and have government support, this guy is achieving something. You can't just wash it away, he might be the next landlord in 5-10yrs
