What you need to know:

  • Many of the residents in Kamuyu are squatters and have been struggling to get title deeds for years.
  • To assemble one incubator, with all the materials with him ready, Macharia notes that he only takes three hours.
  • He regulates the temperature of the incubator at a maximum of 39 degree Celsius and a minimum of 37 degrees Celsius.
  • Doris Wambui, a livestock production officer from the Ministry of Agriculture, Nyeri, says Macharia’s ingenuity is what small farmers need to boost their businesses.

Kamuyu is not one of the popular areas in Nyeri, perhaps because there is little that is spectacular about it.
