Kenya’s oil deposits can run her for 300 years

JUST HOW MUCH oil deposits could there be in Kenya ?

According to an analysis by the prospecting companies- Tullow oil and Africa oil of Canada- perhaps enough to run the country for 300 years. Or enough to run the US for 18 months. Bloomberg reported that the two oil drillers, who first discovered oil in Kenya’s rift valley basin only last year, now say the 450 KM long basin could hold 10 billion barrels- enough to run Kenya for 300 years!

Consequently, the oil

How Nairobi can save Ksh 50 Million a day

It’s possible to save 50 million a day in Nairobi alone if these projects are implemented

Revamp the railway transport and adopt new stop overs Expand major roads Upgrade Nairobi Outer Ring roads ( 10 billion approved last year by ADB bank). We need to see work start. Eng. Kamau, we are waiting. This will open East lands in a big way. Property market will sky rocket, rentals will go up. New frontiers will open up such as Ruai, kbc, kantafu etc . No wonder property developers want a piece in Kangundo road. Get your piece at our project called Blessed Gardens check it on Lusaka road, enterprise road, Likoni roads , Ring road, quarry road are all going to be dual carriages. We thank European Union who gave us approximately 4 billion yesterday (17th June 2014).Our government will contribute 1.5 billion to make the project come to a success. Wah! What does this mean to business. We are going to see a boom. Our workers will be able to arrive to work early, we will see more productivity and more businesses along these highways. Definitely the average drive speed will go up currently, the speed for driving on cbd is 40km per hour. We may achieve higher speed. More savings on fuel and less theft of side mirrors as no slowing down on highways. If you are my fan take advantage and find out more opportunities in those areas.

Extention of General Waruingi road via Juja road to Thika Superhighway. There will be cycling paths, and foot paths. Lusaka and Mumias road will also be done. KeNHA has been allocated 1 billion to create additional lanes towards road junctions which is cheaper than over passes and flyovers. …KeNHA update your site so that we know which junctions are these. <p

What does the uptake of Eurobond in Kenya mean?

I am utterly amazed by the uptake of the Eurobond. As as Nation we were looking for 170 billion and the wealthy people in Europe and other countries are willing to loan us at an interest of 6 to 7 per cent per year a whooping 702 billion. This is a record in the whole of Africas history.

To my fans what does this mean in simple language

We have too much money out there for people to lend in low interest. Imagine 6 per cent when my company Optiven Ltd borrows at 19 to 20 per cent. Investors have seen opportunities in Kenya and they have a lot of confidence. They are able to see long term. They do not see mpeketoni or terror attacks as these are just speed bumps at the moment. I learnt this from Vimal Shah . A good lesson to my fans. ..Do not miss any investment opportunities because of the current situations or happenings. All these are coming to pass and Kenya will exist millions of years to come. Learn from foreign investors and also plan to invest. If you had planned to buy a value added plot log in and buy one. Refuse to be myopic. KENYA is strategic investment destination despite the security situation

Foreign investors have got faith in our currency. Just two days ago, EU gave Kenya 52 billion for infrastructure. They were
