Suspicions Raised Over Possible Chinese-Only Athi River "Friendship" City

He got interesting responses from concerned Kenyans;

The article reports that :

Beijing Damei Investment Company, a Chinese construction giant, on Wednesday said the project -- dubbed the Friendship City -- will be modelled along the mega Chinese parks that comprise homes, factories and amenities like hospitals, schools and shopping malls all in one location.

The city, whose construction starts later this year, will sit on about 1,200 acres of land in Athi River, Businessman Bobby Kamani said Thursday, while disclosing that he has shareholding interest in the multi-billion-shilling project through his Zuri Group of companies.
