How August 2022 Elections in Kenya will Impact Real Estate Market in Uasin Gishu.

Uasin Gishu County is the home to Deputy President William Ruto who is one of the main contenders for the presidency seat in the upcoming August 2022 general elections. Considered his stronghold, we want to look at how his win may impact on real estate market in Uasin Gishu.

Facts about Uasin Gishu

Eldoret Town

The Uasin Gishu County government is installing CCTV cameras in Eldoret to enhance security. This is part of measures to boost investor confidence and position the town for city status. Governor Jackson Mandago’s administration aims to ensure Eldoret is a safe haven for doing business since it will qualify itself to host a city in the future. He said that his administration wants to improve infrastructure and other services in order to attract more investors and traders to establish businesses in Eldoret, which would spur the county’s economic growth and create job opportunities for the majority of unemployed youths. This move can be immediately actualized if William Ruto wins the presidency in the upcoming polls.

Uasin Gishu Real Estate Market

  As Eldoret’s central business district is bursting at the seams, Mr. Mandago faces three major challenges: controlled change of user, easing pressure on Eldoret’s central business district, and expansion of land for residential use. Two years ago, Gov. Jackson Mandago suspended the sub-division of land in the county to allow the drawing up of a master plan that would guide the county’s real estate and property development. The move was primarily aimed at placing checks and balances against the mutilation of agricultural land for purposes of real estate development–a temptation largely motivated by increasingly attractive land prices.

While in his home turf of Uasin Gishu, Ruto who is seeking to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta once his term comes to an end pledged to set aside sh.100 billion to facilitate agro-processing, value addition, and manufacturing that would help create more jobs for the youths. This will continue to expand the economy and enhance the real estate market in Uasin Gishu if implemented.
