External Examiner, Prof. Jonas Tumsifu participated in the urban planning studio presentation by post graduate students. The 2022 urban studio was conducted in Wote Municipality of Makueni County.

The growth of the municipality is expected to be spurred by the establishment of the county headquarters and investment by private sector players in business and infrastructure. There are numerous universities located in the municipality which has seen the growth of student accommodation and related infrastructure. The municipality is also well linked by all weather roads to other urban areas of Machakos and Kibwezi. 

The plan has proposed measures to support sustainable urban growth and address socio-economic challenges to improve the quality of living standards for the urban residents. More
