The much hyped Silicon Savanah that was part of the country's 2030 plan is currently taking shape with contractors on site struggling to beat the deadlines ahead of 2030. The site has lagged behind in development, despite the government's continued allocation of funds towards the same. Lately, different arms of government, policy makers and interested investors have been paying a visit to the site as they assess development progress.
Earlier today, the Parliamentary Departmental Committee on Communication, Innovation Monitoring and Evaluation visited the tech city to perform site assessment and conduct an impact analysis of the project on the local community.
According to the PS, Jerome Ochieng, the progress of the project is impressive and everything is going on as planned. With today's visit, the team had an opportunity to interact with contractors and workers on site. The PS, Jerome, notes that, "I was impressed by the progress made at the Data Centre Phase 2 which will be ready for use by the first quarter of 2021 as well as the Water Treatment Plant and Waste Water Reclamation Facility which will ensure sustainable water usage at the Technopolis".
The project will be the country's most futuristic project, that will have been developed by the Kenyan government.
