Nyandarua is to get its first private golf resort that is expected to employ up to 1,500 residents.

Officially giving the Mt Kipipiri Golf Resort the green light on Tuesday, Governor Daniel Waithaka said his government would work with the Chinese investors to ensure it is completed in time.

Governor Waithaka praised the investors for choosing the location, which is at the foot of the Aberdare Mountains, and falls under the tourist circuit connecting Nairobi and the northern circuit of Isiolo, Marsabit and Laikipia.

The Sh22 billion resort is being built on a 1,400-acre farm previously owned by former spy chief James Kanyotu.

Construction equipment is already on the site and the resort is expected to be completed in five years.

It will comprise an airstrip, 600 villas and an 18-hole golf course under the management of Chief Executive Young Moon Choi, Managing Director Harish Ramji Patel and Director Robert Njoroge.

Mr Njoroge said an existing airstrip would be modernised and part of the farm not taken up by buildings will be used to grow crops like strawberries that are not available from farmers in the area.
