Back in the days, when Thika was been fronted as an industrial town (from 1992 counting backwards), the town had less than 30 industries.
In the 1st term of President Ronald Regan of the USA, 70,000 freaking manufacturing companies closed shop in the US and moved based to China.
All the Chinese did was provide the infrastructure needed and labor, Americans brought in Machinery, technology , expertise and trained the Chinese.
70,000 company was the starting point, as many others followed in their hundred thousands.
What about if these 70k company were dropped in the wider East Africa region, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi, each with a minimum of 3,000 employees ? With prospects of more following ?
