Nakuru 6
Nakuru town is located 160 km North west of Nairobi and is the fourth largest urban centre in Kenya after Nairobi, Mombassa and Kisumu. It is situated at an altitude of 1859m above the sea level and it is within the region of the Great Rift Valley whose formation gave rise to a unique natural structure.

Kisumu 7
KISUMU is a very well located city with a high potential for growth. But I am worried the city planning does not favor the growth. If properly planned it can be a very beautiful place to be. Kisumu other than Mombasa should be a holyday destination for local and tourist. Kisumu despite being 3rd largest city in Kenya, it is perhaps the slowest in growth. Money circulation is too low, subjecting life to be very expensive to lower and middle class. Investment oportunities are also low, to add salt on pepper frequent violence eruptions is harting the allready fragile investment programmes. A lot need to be done to make Kisumu attractive. Edgar.
