The promulgation of the current constitution in Kenya gave people hope. It meant a new beginning of approaches to administration in Kenya because the government would certainly be devolved. But even as we speak, many counties are yet to realize the benefits of devolution that led to the mushrooming of countries. On the other hand, It would be better to look at the potential of the counties and how they can support investment.Here are the top 10 counties to invest in in Kenya.
1. Nairobi County
Many people would be cynical about this but the first county for investment is certainly Nairobi. Nairobi county has better infrastructure there are more opportunities. Even smallest of businesses do survive because of the high purchasing power. Besides this, marketing is made easier.
2. Mombasa County
Mombasa county is also another place for investment. It is another urban setup and quite similar to Nairobi, it can support various business opportunities. There is good population, and it is receiving a boost during holidays especially from both local and international tourists.
3. Kisumu County
Kisumu is one county that is still developing. Even with the good infrastructure, there are fewer industries and opportunities are numerous.
