What does Konzacity 10Km buffer zone in Kilome mean?

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

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

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

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

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
