Ruiru Kamakis: Kiambu is one of the most populous counties in Kenya, which boasts being home to thousands of people who work within the Nairobi Metropolitan City. This is because buying land within the city is a marathon on its own as the prices run into tens if not hundreds of millions, depending the size of property.

Kiambu, however, provides affordable land prices and within the reach of many city dwellers and is also very close to Nairobi. You only need about 20 minutes to get to Nairobi.

With the current rush to purchase land in Kiambu and its environments, the demand is obviously high and this basically means the prices are bound to go higher with time because of the need for space and a place to call home.
