Safaricom to set up Sh3bn M-Pesa Academy in Thika


Telecommunications company Safaricom is building a school that will accommodate up to 1,000 needy students, joining a growing list of blue chip companies that are spending billions of shillings to educate disadvantaged children. The secondary school, dubbed M-Pesa Academy, will be built on a 50-acre piece of land in Thika next to Albizzia Gardens.“The project cost is just shy of Sh3 billion,” said Safaricom chief executive Bob Collymore in an interview.

Construction has already started and the school is targeted for completion early next year. Safaricom is expected to hold an official launch for the institution, which will be fashioned on the Starehe Boys Center model that admits needy but bright students who pay minimal or no fees.

Bid family, Broadways invest in Sh1bn Thika real estate project


The residential and business development is dubbed Albizzia Downs Estate and will be carried out in phases, with the first one kicking off in March according to the Bid family. Bread maker Broadways, Dawa Ltd and manufacturer Capwell Industries are the other parties in the consortium.

The group has set aside 105 acres along the Thika-Mang'u road to host phase one of the project. It borders the Braeburn Imani International Schools.

Although the development is likely to cost much more, the Bid family could only disclose the Sh1 billion that will largely go into infrastructure. The land itself, according to the investors, is valued at Sh1 billion at market rates due to its prime location by the tarmack road. It also neighbours the proposed M-Pesa academy by Safaricom and an upscale residential area.
