An Entrepreneur Approach to development that is now anchored in Kenya Constitution 2010 1 (2) “Sovereign Power can be exercised directly,” has enabled Diaspora Kenyans progress an idea to become Diaspora University Town development plan. The site the Institution Town Development Plan legislated under Kenya Constitution 185 (4) will be implemented in Taita Taveta County is headed for opening. Many Diaspora Kenyans working on the project are excited to be part of the project. They plan to visit Kenya and be part of opening the site.

Attorney Njoroge Kamau, who has over the year’s set-up the legal plan of the project is happy with the progress made. He says the Kenya Constitution words, “Sovereign Power can be exercised directly,” is similar to the entrepreneurial spirit that founds and develops Towns and Cities. Houston City that today has a population of 2.3 million, is the most populous city in Texas, and the fourth most populous city in the U.S; was started by Entrepreneurs in 1873. Today, 144 years later, Houston is home to about 10,000 Diaspora Kenyans.   

Prof. Philliph Mutisya, who studied in UMass at Umass in Amherst, MA and has taught in the U.S Universities for close to 30 years each day is always thinking of Diaspora University. The professor with 30 other scholars are working to transfer knowledge through education that will contribute toward the development of Kenya so the constitutional rights of all persons are met.      

Dr. Wilson Endege, a scientist in the field of medicine production is working to have a Medicine Plant producing medicine in the Diaspora University Town. In the past few years he has worked on this plan and even rented storage space where he stores the equipment he shall start the company with.  

Dr. Philip Mwalali, Dr. Edwin Njagi, Dr. Mark Kabue, RNs Mary Kinyanjui and Bui Thuo, and other professionals have started the Medical Hospital Plan Development Board. The board is working on opening: Medical Hospital, Doctor’s Medicine Practice, Dental Medicine, Medicine Production, Diagnostics, University Healthcare Sciences Education, Public Health, Mental Health and other healthcare services for residents, students, tourists and all persons wanting healthcare services.      

Diaspora professionals who have put in thousands of hours in Time Capital and Thousands of dollars in Cash Capital are delighted in knowing that they will be creating new jobs. In the first four months of development, January to April, the development plan is expected to create about 1,000 new jobs. By 2022 when the 5 year development plan started ends, the town is expected to have 20,000 jobs and about 500 Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
