Thursday October 25, 2018-Former President Mwai Kibaki plans to build a luxurious five-star hotel next to the Menengai Crater in Nakuru County.
The multi-billion investment is informed by heightened global interest in the long-forgotten crater that last experienced a volcanic explosion 8,000 years ago.
Besides, Kibaki, through his company, Gingalili (1968) Ltd, plans to build a mini-city that will include educational institutions, low, medium and high income residential units as well as a commercial centre on both sides of the Nyahururu-Nakuru Road that cuts through the property.
According to National Environment Management Authority (NEMA), Kibaki family’s company Gingalili (1968) Ltd will occupy 692 acres next to the crater where a 100MW geothermal field is under development.
NEMA invited the public to file submissions within the next 30 days before a decision is made on whether or not to allow its implementation.
“Nema invites members of the public to submit oral and written submissions within 30 days to assist the authority in the decision-making process for this project,” said the NEMA notice in the dailies.
