Kenya’s development plans within business and infrastructure are taking a giant leap and investing £9.1 billion on an IT and business hub named the 'Africa’s Silicon Savannah.' This immense project will be located at the future Konza Technology City.

The project is within the Kenyan government’s Vision 2030. It is being planned to create around 20,000 IT jobs by 2015, and approximately 200,000 jobs by 2030 for young and bright Kenyan locals. The area will feature 37,000 residential homes, a university campus, hotels, schools, hospitals and research facilities. Around 6,000 hectors of the land will be conserved to maintain a wildlife area, currently already assured by the Kenya Wildlife Conservancy .

The project is hoped to spur trade and investment activities, create employment and become a hub of advancement. Stats for African Tech Cities Trending: Older & Mild
