History of Ndeiya
Ndeiya remained largely undeveloped even though there were vast pieces of land. There were no major roads connecting it to the surrounding counties. There was no real estate activity in the area but this has since changed.
It was previously a ward but as of November 2021, it is the newest sub-county in Kiambu County. Ndeiya is a prime area. The main road to Ndeiya is all tarmac. It is on Dagorretti road (Mutarakwa-Gikambura) making it ideal for a residential home or speculation as it’s a fast-growing location. Property value will increase over a short period of time. Dagoretti road connects the Nairobi-Nakuru Highway to the Southern By-pass.
Investors and developers are flocking in to buy the vast pieces of land. Therefore this has led to major demand for land in the area. Although development upgrades with the help of the county government are ongoing, there has been a huge rise in settlement within the area. This has led to its huge growth in terms of population. The expanded roads are a huge contributor to Ndeiya’s growth. Consequently, this has enabled cheap and affordable prices on the pieces of land that are up for sale.
