Attorney Njoroge Kamau would visit Kenya, 2005, and open the discussion on how the Diaspora Capital could become part of the housing development of Kenya. In 2017, at Nairobi, he met Bishop Donald Mwawasi of Atlanta in Kenya to progress Diaspora University Town project spearheaded by Diaspora Kenyans that will have one of the biggest housing development plans. Diaspora University Town project has evolved and progressed over time to become a project of a planned town. The Institution Town development plan that was presented by Dr. Wilson Endege and Bishop Donald Mwawasi was approved for development in Taita Taveta County through legislation by the County Assembly. The plan includes development of a University, Medical Hospital, Industrial Park, Tourism and Other economic sectors.

Attorney Kamau has worked on the legal plan of the project progressively. He first worked on the legal plan of the housing development plan (HDP) and thereafter the legal plan that saw the HDP merge with the university development plan (UDP) to become the University Town development plan. 
Bishop Donald Mwawasi became part of the Kenya University Project 2012. He would start working on the land resource for the project. His work has since led to the land the project will be implemented on.

During the meeting Bishop Mwawasi thanked Attorney Kamau for establishing the legal plan. On his part the Attorney thanked the Bishop for the work he has done that has led to the land resource and County Government Plan approval and incentives. 

Bishop Mwawasi further thanked the Diaspora who have opened files at the law firm of Attorney Kamau and will be putting in Capital to develop Town Houses, University, Industries and other developments that will create new jobs and a well-planned town. He informed Attorney Kamau that the County Executive, County Assembly and Taita Taveta county residents want the project implemented in the County. 

The Bishop added that he had met the Deputy Governor, Ms Majala Mlaghui; Acting County Secretary Samuel Mwanyasi; Member of County Assembly - Mwatate ward, Abednego Mwajala, who represents the ward the land is located, and other officials. He said, “They all want the town and university developed in Taita Taveta County.” 

The current target is to ground-break the Diaspora University Town on March 2018. Some of the graduates who were at the graduation ceremony at University of Nairobi the same day Bishop Mwawasi and Attorney Kamau were meeting will be happy that there are persons working to create jobs for them once they get jobs at the Diaspora University Town development site.
