Nakuru County

Nakuru County (Pilot town - Njoro)

The County Government’s choice of Njoro town has been motivated by several factors:

 

  • Njoro’s status as a unique agricultural town, with rich agrarian hinterland
  • Manufacturing potential, in particular timber-based and crop processing factories
  • Link to indigenous forest communities (Ogiek)
  • Lord Egerton’s castle with tourism potential
  • Njoro’s unclear spatial arrangement and growing informality (potential growth of slums in Bondeni, Jawatho, Kiwanja Ndege, etc.)
  • Synergies with KISIP and KMP experiences
Located 20 km from Nakuru town Njoro has carved out an identity as an important agricultural research and educational centre. The town is home to Egerton University and a campus of the Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organisation (KALRO).
