South Coast of Mombasa is among Kenya’s top economic hub. Kenyan government and international economic advisers are keen to ensure that Kenyans and investors are able to tap on the wealth of this region.
As we may be aware, the most expensive infrastructures in the Eastern region of Africa are being developed at the Kenyan Coast. Dongo Kundu road is one of the most expensive bypass in Kenya. The Likoni Bridge alone will cost the tax payers Ksh 216 Billion. That is half the cost of construction of SGR railway line from Miritini to Nairobi.
There are very concrete reasons why it is worth spending on these infrastructures. The main reason is to tap on local and international tourists, Those who have been keen to follow up on the trends of tourism must have noticed the increase of chartered flights from Europe and direct to Moi International Airport – Mombasa. Most of these tourists travel through Likoni ferry to access Diani which is a hectic jouirney due to its delays and human traffic. To avoid this, tourists have resulted to boarding two flights from Europe to Nairobi and then use Jambojet from JKIA to Diani. As a result Jambojet has increased its flights from 2 to 3 daily. Other airlines have also followed suit. This has created another need to expand Diani airstrip to an airport.
Discovery of mineral deposits like Titanium, Niobium that are estimated to be in excess of Ksh 9Trillion will put Kwale County
in the league of the wealthiest counties in the country.
Plans by Kenya and Tanzania Governments to connect these two countries via Bagamoyo and Malindi through Lunga Lunga in Kwale County is almost becoming a reality with construction work expected to start anytime soon, this will further open up South Coast where residents are expected to grab business opportunities that will emanate from this great initiative.
These factors just to mention a few, make it worthy to invest at Kenya’s south coast and the swifter we become in implementing this vision the better. This is why we are investing today at Diani with our main driving factor being tourism for both local and International as our target market.
