3 'Mini-Cities' under construction outside Nairobi that Kenyans probably don't know about

Urban areas across the country and the world contribute the biggest chunk to their respective economies.

However, most of the nation's cities are majorly unplanned and suffer from huge infrastructure deficit and social challenges. It is for that reason that the Kenyan government and its investors are increasing their efforts to plan, design and develop new cities.

Below are 3 mini-cities which are currently under construction outside Kenya's capital that Kenyans probably don't know about:
