Construction of the first phase of a major hydroelectric dam in Kenya is nearing the halfway mark, with the Chinese-backed project promising to provide water and power supplies for a technology-driven city taking shape under an ambitious development plan.
The Thwake Multipurpose Dam is being built by China Gezhouba Group Company, or CGGC. It is integral to the plan for Konza Technology City, which the government approved as a development project in 2008.
