Peter Mwangi and his wife Agnes of Anaheim, CA, who are on vacation in Kenya, travelled to Taita Taveta for a tour of the land that the Kenya University Project – University Town shall be developed. Pastor Pagiel Mshila who worked closely with Bishop Donald Mwawasi in establishing the land took them for a land tour. Peter was excited after visiting the area that the Diaspora University town will be developed. He called the area, “a beautiful place.” This will soon become their next home as he and other Diaspora build a new town in Kenya.

With the great weather in Kenya, one question that many Diaspora when asked are unable to answer is: “Why did you leave Kenya to come to the hot or cold weather in the U.S?” The answer that Diaspora have not been able to come with is who is supposed to develop towns? Anaheim, the City, Peter and his wife call home, was founded by 50 families and has today become a City of 340,000 persons with about 2,000 Kenyans settling in the City.  

Peter and his wife are among the Diaspora who through the KUP system will be part of founding the new town. Once Diaspora capital and bank loan advance capital is added to the land through houses and infrastructure a well-planned town with good housing, paved roads and utilities will result just like any town or city in the U.S. The only difference will be the town will have 12 hours daylight and will never experience extreme hot or cold temperatures.  

The University Town development plan includes: University, Medical Hospital, Biotechnology Pharmaceutical Company, Energy Company and diverse industries established in the Industrial park. The plan is expected to achieve 20,000 new jobs and close to 500 small and medium enterprises. About 2,000 Diaspora Kenyans are expected to relocate to the town and inject expertise capital in the university, Medical Hospital and SME’s developed.
