Over Sh4 billion will be spent by taxpayers to relocate a technical college from the leafy upmarket Gigiri area to Ngong, paving the way for the establishment of an exclusive diplomatic enclave.
The Education Ministry has purchased 100 acres in Ngong for the Kenya Technical Trainer’s College (KTTC), which has been in operation since 1978 and will be relocated from its current location in Nairobi’s Gigiri estate in the diplomatic district.
According to the ministry, the initial capital required to begin infrastructure development for the new KTTC is Sh4 billion.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has already ordered that the KTTC, which is located near the US Embassy and the United Nations complex that houses the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the United Nations Human Settlements Programme, be relocated.
According to the State Department for Vocational and Technical Training, the Cabinet approved the relocation of KTTC to make way for the establishment of a diplomatic enclave in accordance with the Vienna Convention.
“Signatories to the Vienna Convention, to which Kenya is a party are required to identify an area with proper security, good infrastructure, proper social setup among others to house diplomatic missions,” Margaret Mwakima, the Principal Secretary, told MPs last week during the national budget review.
Dr Mwakima stated that due to the close proximity of the United Nations Office in Nairobi, the Unep, and other diplomatic missions to KTTC, the college land was easily found to meet the requirements of the Vienna convention.
“We have negotiated on a win-win basis. The need for land for the diplomatic enclave is more than what we had prepared to provide.
“If we were to release the land, the only option was for us to get the structures along Ngong road,” Dr Mwakima told the Education Committee.
