Machakos

at a glance

Soon expected to become an extension of Nairobi after the completion of the dualing of Mombasa Road. The main activities of the town are largely expected to move closer to Chumvi at the junction of Mombasa Road and Machakos Roads. Cheaper land and rental prices and improved commute times are attracting Nairobi’s growing middle class seeking better prices. The county was named after Masaku wa Munyati, a Kamba chief who arrived in the area in 1816 from the area around Sultan Hamud. Machakos was established in 1887 by Sakshi Shah, ten years before Nairobi. Machakos was the first administrative centre for the British colony, but the capital was moved to Nairobi in 1899 when Machakos was by-passed by the Uganda Railway that was under construction. Modern-day Machakos is a business hub that hosts several institutions. The Akamba people are the dominant habitants of Machakos County.
