Kitengela is the fastest growing Nairobi suburbs, located on the southern part of Nairobi and in Kajiado East. Kitengela town is not what it used to be two decades ago; the famous stop over with countable dukas where one could only obtain basic commodities is now awakening to a small metropolis. Below are some of the reasons why courier business is thriving in Kitengela.
Kitengela town is 35kms from Nairobi city, this nearness to the capital is luring middle class earners with aspiration to own their own homes to rush to Kitengela.
It is only in Kitengela that big chunks of land are available and at reasonable amount.
Today it would take you an hour to travel from Kitengela to Nairobi using a public means of transport. However, due to the property boom in Kitengela, Namanga and its counterpart Mombasa Road have been lately unpredictable hence the need for an alternative mode of transport to Kitengela town. The termination of Kitengela railway terminus equally furthered the rise of boda boda operators here, but courier standards are high.
Most of the Kitengela dwellers opt courier companies to acquire whatever they need to and from the city saving them enormous time and money. If one need an hourly delivery courier service to places like South B, South C, Nairobi CBD, Upper Hill, Westlands, Parklands and Ngara, then the only way to catch-up on time is by dialing for a rider. Alternatively, one can now post a letter with the courier companies for the next day door to door delivery at only Kes.250/-
Kitengela booming property business has enticed both individual homeowners and the giant property developers like Lloyd Masika and Night Frank who have been involved in the last two biggest shopping malls opened this month: The Kitengela and The Signature Mall, which are scarcely 5kms apart. With this prospect, Kitengela dwellers are now shopping at the comfort of their homes; letting the couriers do what they do best.
The County government of Kajiado is also working with the World Bank to see better infrastructure in Kitengela town, this has seen the construction and completion of the Kitengela Market Road last year and construction of Kitengela Prisons Road, which is near completion. Soon all the hinterlands will be tarmacked; coded facilitating Kitengela speed deliveries.
Kitengela dwellers today are spoilt for choice when it comes to banking, universities, and hospitality industries that have set their branches and main offices in Kitengela town awakening once a hot, windy and dusty town.
