Some of Kenya’s counties have potential to start industrial clusters. Take the county of Bungoma
• Bungoma is 3,032.2 square kilometers. This area holds about 1375063 people of which 48% are male and 52% women with a very high age dependency ratio of 93.8.
• The county is agricultural with the mainstay being maize and sugar cane although potential for other crops including oil crops can be said to be largely virgin. If maize is harvested only once a year (with relatively low returns especially for small scale farmers) then sugar cane takes 18 months to mature with payment hiccups. Zero grazing is slowly but steadily picking up. Our casual research shows that to be profitable maize farming must be done on a minimum of 10 acres. Bungoma's population growth rate currently standing at 4.3% has led to land subdivisions with the average landholding being less than half of 10 acres. This may partially explain why 53 % of Bungoma’s population lives below poverty line.
