The ground-breaking of Sergoit Golf and Wildlife Resorts heralded the establishment of real estate in Western Kenya.
Directors of Sergoit Holdings Limited led a group of investors from the North Rift and residents in witnessing the launch of the facility.
The company’s chairman Joshua Chepkwony said the start-of-the-art facility would introduce the region to the global world.
“Our resorts will not be like any other facility but it will be the first sports city to set up in the country since independence,” said Chepkwony.
Standard Group Chief Executive Officer Sam Shollei and the event’s chief guest who is also Chief Executive Officer of Transnational Bank Sammy Langat attended the function.
With an investment that is estimated to exceed Sh40 billion, the project blends recreational, sports and touristic features.
The recreational facility would have three Golf Courses with 36-hole Golf Course making it to be the premier one in Kenya.
Mr Shollei said the breakthrough is an indication that the country has started to reclaim its destiny.
Shollei said: “This project will not only provide opportunities to the region but will transform it as well.”
