Governor Mutula Kilonzo Jr on Friday asked over 4 million Kenyans living, and working abroad to make Makueni their number one destination choice for lucrative investment opportunities.
The governor says many dreams harbored by diaspora Kenyans who went to work abroad, made money, and are now comfortably living off abroad should be realized in Makueni soil.
H.E the governor was speaking when he officiated the EireKenya Irish Village Ground-breaking event at Konza, Malili, Kilome Sub-County.
The construction of the first Makueni gated community homes by a group of Kenyans working in Ireland will sit on a 40-acre piece of land with a controlled development of villas, bungalows, and social amenities.
He assured that through his government he will ensure that it is possible to navigate all processes of acquiring property and development approvals in the County.
“The Department of Lands, Urban Planning and Development ensured that the development application for this particular project met all the conditions and the approval was done within a short time with the consent of the cabinet. We welcome any other investor to Makueni since all processes are done seamlessly,” the governor said
The Governor was accompanied by Lucy Mulili (Deputy Governor), MP Thaddeus Nzambia (Kilome), Amos Wachira (Chair-Eirekenya), and area MCA, among other leaders.
