What does Konzacity 10Km buffer zone in Kilome mean?

February 24, 2012 1 comment

What is zoning? It is classifying/setting aside to meet/support something nearby, in this case land. For example roads have buffer zones known as road reserves that assist ensure a certain level of safety space for all road users.
Therefore in this case re-zoning is reclassifying land use within a 10km radius from konzacity fence ie i can only put up investments that meet or support standards set by konzacity within the 10km radius. (See more..)
Where will the buffer zone start? From Nairobi direction after machakos junction is a lone big hill on your left. 10km would start from around the dip after that hill. While coming from Mombasa the 10km zone would start just after Salama shopping centre(after 1st climb with climbing lane).
What standards have been set by konzacity, can i meet them?
What investments can you do that meet those standards, examples?
All land within that buffer zone is either 50×100, 7 or 10acres. What can you put up on that size of land that is of value economically yet meet konzacity standards?
Thought of buying and subdiving? What does the land bill say about land in zoned regions? Will it be illegal to own smaller parcels within that zone?
Where are you going to get water for your investment?
How will you access your investment?
How will you handle sewage?
Under what council will you be in (Kajiado, Mavoko, Nairobi, Machakos, Makueni, Malili)? Can they provide those services? What is their track record? Exactly where are they located? Have you visited their offices to see if they have been able to provide the same for themselves and their officers?

Kenya Loosing Billions in Kilome and environs

February 17, 2012 Leave a comment

Kenya is loosing billions annually in Kilome and it’s environs with the Biggest loosers being the Kenya Revenue Authority and  Makueni County.

One of Kenya’s BIGGEST mineral resource is being mined free style UNCONTROLLED!

Everyday houses country wide are being built using this Mineral – SAND. No single person has a record of how many Kilograms are mined UNTAXED! Take a lorry to be 10 tonnes ie 10,000kgs packed in 50Kg bags retailing at Ksh 500, 16% of this is Ksh160,000 per lorry load in VAT ONLY! (per Trip). Every day Monday to Monday at Least 20 lorries will ferry from Kilome alone through Mombasa road for Nairobi which is equal to Ksh 3.2million loss to Goverment Daily x 365 = Ksh 1.168 billion annually for just 20 trucks leaving Kilome daily for NAIROBI only.

How much more for those going in ALL directions?

You are yet to count VAT on Packaging Materials, Income tax on employees in a controlled, licensed, and registered system, Tax on affiliated products where these are being processed eg food, housing, clothing and council license fees. Lets also not forget The GOOD IMAGE for creating EMPLOYMENT for youth in a country where employment creation is an issue.

Sand Harvesting within planned 10km Konzacity buffer Zone in Kilome

February 16, 2012 Leave a comment

Uncontrolled sand harvesting like this one

in plots within the proposed 10km Konzacity buffer zone are beginning to create gully’s on stream heads(seasonal rivers) that feed land around Konzacity.
Since most of these are occurring on yet to be developed/occupied parcels of land it is done without consent of land owners, and trucks crosscross the land leaving gullied criss crossed roads all over making it also difficult for land owners to reach their parcels.
Paying local desperate youths around ksh500 to fill the trucks what will be the eventual environmental and economic costs as the gullies extend towards the city environs? Also consider the image of a city being planned and sold to investors with growing gullies around it ie. if they can’t manage the city plus environs before the first structure is put up, how will they manage it when the constructions begin?
Some of these valley’s have dams just a few metres lower originally put up for cattle they have water despite the current dry weather that may soon silt as the natural springs that feed them (dams) during dry spells dry up. Quite an image for the city planners. This also means the city planners never considered the youth around the city and potential eventual security risks as they destroy their own family’s source of water and find themselves desperate in a short while as houses and businesses begin to operate.

Red ALERT, as Kilimanjaro pipeline dries up in Kilome

February 12, 2012 Leave a comment

The famous NolTuresh aka Kilimanjaro water project/pipeline has run dry. Meant to cater for ukambani(Machakos) and Athi River, residents of Salama along Mombasa road (location of the pipelines first pump station from Kilimamjaro slopes) are now lining up to buy water from trucks.
Questions being openly asked are- is leadership unable to deliver water that flows by gravity? Others have gotten into village groups and sorted their water issues by damming their valleys saying those concerned don’t exist and they don’t trust promises any longer ie they have decided to move on with their lives listening only to those assisting them move forward.
Are Kajiado residents doing the same?  As they are said to have burst the pipeline to use it for irrigation. Also what will the future be for all communities and towns dependent on Kilimanjaro water pipeline, will politicians feed them using water trucks and for how long and at what cost, is this the permanent solution? Questions youth and wazees in Kilome are now asking.
Even for PR purposes how are they going to convince investors just 20 minutes away on the SAME highway that they will manage a cities water if defeated by that of a township on a major pipeline!

Building Technology that gaurantees no wall cracks, from Kilome

February 11, 2012 Leave a comment

image

Imagine NEVER having to worryN about cracks on your wall. That’s possible with this building technology which you can come and see for FREE in Kilome.
It gets better, NO CEMENT REQUIRED! Yes it’s cheap as cement is only used to plaster or decorate. All materials are sourced locally, and beautiful are natures patterns that what is left is for you to get creative. Are the walls solid? straight? See and test the multiple houses that have been made locally and decide for yourself.
Who can afford? With ksh 400,000 you have a basic solid 2bedroom house complete with hillside views that may include Mt. Kilimanjaro.
What if I’m not using the house frequently? The tourism potential for sight seeing, picnics, hiking, cycling,birdwatching, rock climbing and slidding is totally untapped yet it’s only 1-2 hrs away from Nairobi (100kms) not forgetting the opportunities from the new city

kilome to decongest port of mombasa (a vision from kilome)

February 8, 2012 Leave a comment

Ports Authority to de-congest cargo port by moving all landed cargo to a modern holding port in kilome. This inland port 3times larger presents the authority with room to expand without much legal issues on land transactions and will also allow them build a modern clearing house where certified clearing agents will have modern office space for renting and operating from, shopping mall and recreation centre.
In a move aimed at focusing the main port to it’s core activity of offloading/loading cargo ships and making it the most effective and efficient for the regions cargo, it will also see offloading/loading/cargo tracking computerised and a comprehensive rail system to their inland kilome port put in place. All long haul road transporters will henceforth access cargo at kilome. There will be several lease managed modern truck parking lots with option pay hostels for drivers plus leased rental office park blocks for certified transporters within port yard. All transit cargo will be inspected and weighed here on one side, while the other side caters for sea bound export cargo that’s inspected, cleared and queued for loading onto ship at this point and then moved by rail to ship yard. Export will be computerised with a queue system of first come first served basis. There will be a rental storage yard for goods increasing revenues for the ports authority complete with fridgerated godowns plus grain silo’s for rent.
Other facilities at this inland port include a computorised auction park open to public where all unclaimed goods are publicly inspected and auctioned complete with a recreation center and modern hotels (3-5 star).
All this is in line with vision 2030 assisting the government decongest mombasa road, get rid of hazards of transporters parking in residential mombasa, reduce wear and tear of Nairobi-Mombasa highway as well as reducing weigh bridges from 2 (Mariakani & mlolongo) to one for Mombasa highway, while at the same time getting it off the highway thus ensuring smooth flow of traffic on the highway translating to lower transport costs daily for all users. A crushing/recycling facility at site will be a source for additional revenue as all substandard imported items are crushed and sorted to reusable waste metal or plastic for export or local enterprises.
Local banks have indicated their capability to arrange financing of any size for development projects, and Eastern Africans are now hungry to invest their funds either for part ownership or by purchasing commercial paper for higher returns than prevailing bank interest rates on viable projects.

Is your politician spiritually binding you and your homestead?

January 28, 2012 Leave a comment

Here in Kenya we are approaching that season of “free” money. Question: Can you work for a million, then distribute it for free to anyone for no service?

Here is the process it goes through- you are talked to, then your temples are visited and a small donation is made to your project and blessings are sought. Next stop is Tanzania, Ukambani, Coast or Uganda where sacrifices are made then cash is prayed for to bind ALL those who touch it! Question is, to whom are those prayers made to? ..do you think it’s God? You guessed it right.

The money is then distributed freely but what is not in the public domain is what he had asked for when making the sacrifice. Let’s look at some of the after effects.
One of the promises in rural areas is water. QUESTION: Is it normal to fight for water with faeces in it? Stupid question? Let’s look at what happens on the ground and tell me if something doesn’t add up. Who OWNS and provides water, clean water ‘rain’ freely and right at every doorstep – God or man? Why would anyone watch clean water falling right at home, let it go – sweep dog faeces, human faeces, cow and goat sheat, then where it goes to settle after sweeping ALL that you happily go and collect! Then you complain of strange body and skin ailments. This same individual never agree’s to buy clean water and will ALWAYS argue with you whenever you show him how to trap clean water at home. Sound familiar? Look at the lives of these individuals family, constantly a struggle!

One politician famously said it to his people – ‘That pumpkin you ate, YOU SHALL PAY’

Have you touched that money? Has any member of your family brought into your homestead bought with that money???

Maiani, Kilome’s meeting point

January 24, 2012 Leave a comment

Maiani is a strategic highway backyard. Just 3kms from Nairobi-Mombasa highway on good tarmarc laid over 38years ago, with electricity and access to Kilimanjaro water, security, petrol station… It is also the gateway to Kilome hills and all the towns supported by this tarmac road.
This 38years of tarmac has encouraged virtually every homestead using it to access home to invest in a vehicle and whenever they have a function they look for somewhere to stop off Mombasa road. Yet it is a wonder why no resident of Maiani has ever provided them with that recreation stop point for 30+years. All travelers carry extra money for the journey- MONEY TO SPEND. Don’t Maiani want to tap into that?
Salama is an access point to Mombasa, Nairobi, Loitokitok, Uganda, … All access points tend to cater for nightlife of travelers ie bar’s, disco’s & meals. Other travelers including families, schools, colleges, business people..will tend to seek quieter accomodation, also a place to park their vehicle or motor bike. This is where Maiani fits in.  It’s slightly off the highway therefore quiet, has space for playgrounds and camping(cheap accomodation), fresh air, beautiful views, easy access to security(police), & multiple highway transport options.
As Salama expands naturaly it’s expansion will reach Maiani. We can already begin seeing this, therfore the towns services will have to expand and modernize presenting new opportunities in ‘plots for sale’. Is it wise to sell your plot? Do you have a plan for investing your income? Or is it better to lease land for development earning monthly/yearly or even going into partnerships with investors. If so how do I choose a partner to invest?

To answer who attends these immensely popular classes – As you can see ‘The common Mwananchi’. No frills, just a pure desire to embrace technology. All they had lacked was opportunity!
