If I was the governor there I would set aside a few.acres of land and build MasaiLand Theme Park. A amusement park filled with rollercoasters and water parks... Or maybe Mombasa is a better place for it??

Same as the video posted above but more detailed about Kajiado's plan

Source: Business Daily

Quote:
Kajiado County targets to grow its economy tenfold helped by local and foreign investors’ pledge to invest billions of shilling in Kenya’s richest devolved unit.

One of the most notable investors at last week’s investment forum was US-based Four Seasons Wind Power Company seeking to establish a green energy plant at a cost of $4.5 billion (Sh382 billion) to supply more than 200 megawatts of electricity to the national grid.

Kajiado is strategically located near Nairobi where demand for electricity is high and on the planned high-voltage Kenya Electricity Transmission Company lines linking Kenya to Tanzania.

“We are here seeking to establish a wind energy plant worth $4.5 billion in this county and in fact we have a blank check for the same,” said Four Seasons Wind Power Kenya’s representative George Kimani.

The county that investors noted was the same size as Rwanda is gearing up to overtake the country, which has been listed among the best in terms of economic growth in Africa.

“Tracking what most investors have said — and those who have agreed to settle in this county — indicates huge investments worth billions will be made here,” said Governor David Nkedianye at the close of the two-day investment forum last Friday.

Most investors were interested in alternative energy, real estate, cement and industrial parks, among other sectors.

Dr Nkedianye said that the county government would ease its investment regulations by opening a one-stop shop to aid investors settle in the county within the shortest time possible.

“We know that for investors to settle in Kenya, it has not been an easy task but our county already has plans to open up a one stop-shop that will enable the investors settle here with ease,” said the governor.

He said that county had taken measures to eliminate bottlenecks that have for years adversely affected investment in the county.

County’s Trade minister Florence Ndunge viewed the first investor forum as successful.

“We are yet to take the stock of all the potential foreign investors interested in the county among them four companies from India, three from China, two from US and others from various parts of the world,” said Ms Ndunge.

East African Portland Cement Company managing director Kepher Tande said that the company plans to build a $200 million (Sh17 billion) cement plant in Ilbisil area that would create many employment opportunities.

“Our feasibility study on establishing a clinker factory is almost through and we estimate the plant will cost $200 million,” said Mr Tande.

Apart from a few steel and agro-processing firms, Kajiado County which is located along the Athi River-Namanga highway into Tanzania has few other industries. Instead it is largely a dormitory town for Nairobi with some of the fastest growing towns like Kitengela, Ongata Rongai, Kiserian, Isinya and Ngong.....

The facility is in one of the most prime area in the Kajiado city, it touches the great North Highway. This is a place to be for any serious investor who envisions the city in the next 3 -5 years.The project is crafted in a unique way that Banks and other financial institutions will be fighting to get a space. The Baraka Business Park is located in the heart of Kajiado County Headquarters.

I always wonder why Ford did not continue to make an in-road into the Kenyan auto market after a relatively successful run with the Ford Escort and Cortina of the seventies and eighties. Their cars - at least in the recent past - have been very sound mechanically and they have a good range of fuel-efficient vehicles.

Total Kenya opens station in Kajiado
Business Daily
17 April 2014
Quote:
Total Kenya Thursday opened its service station number 176 at Isinya on the Athi River-Namanga Road and announced plans to set up two others in Kitengela and Namanga.

Kenya’s largest oil marketer by sales said the Isinya station was strategically positioned to take advantage of the proposed Isinya-Konza bypass.

The Athi River-Namanga trade artery that passes through Isinya links Kenya and Tanzania. The station is one of the few mainstream facilities in the fast-growing Kajiado.

“Total Isinya is among the first of several new-look Total service stations in Kajiado County. This is will be followed by two more outlets during the coming months. One of these will be in Kitengela and the other in Namanga,’’ said Ada Eze.

The station is a partnership with local businessman Joseph ole Ngotiek. Total has another service station in Kiserian.

Ms Eze said the company which last year bounced back to profitability has been investing over Sh1 billion annually while engaging in offshore oil exploration in Lamu through sister company, TEPK.

The oil marketer posted a Sh1.3 billion net profit last year, reversing a Sh202 million loss recorded a year earlier.

It made sales of Sh154 billion last year compared to rival KenolKobil with Sh109 billion sales.

Total’s strong performance was aided by a sharp drop in finance costs, increased sales and lower expenses in the period under review.

I feel for those losing their businesses and property. However, Kenyans need to learn to respect public property as well as private property. County governments all over the country should do what Kajiado county government is doing: Return public land to its rightful place.
