Konza City which is far from schedule is is a large technology hub planned by Kenyan Government to be built 64 km south of Nairobi on the way to the port city of Mombasa. It was brought to life through the Parliament Account Committee and endorsed by the Kenyan Government.
The initial concept plan was prepared jointly by Deloitte and Pell Frischmann, a UK based design consultancy and funded by the International Finance Corporation which was estimated to cost 1.2 trillion Kenyan shillings. It is marketed as a key driver of Kenya's national development plan, known as Kenyan Vision 2030.
Now a delay of the vision is yet to be bigger. Which will be a big disappointment to many Kenyans and investors.
Konza city is expected to create jobs in the economy where the government plan was to be able to take advantage of the massive growth of software developer in East Africa.
Despite the political rivalry all political parties supported the project and this makes it to have a high success rate than any other project.
