Mwale Medical and Technology City (MMTC) founder Julius Mwale met Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on the sidelines of the just concluded UN General Assembly in New York.

In a statement, MMTC said the two discussed expansion of the city to the Western African nation. “President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo welcomed our team to Ghana to expand Mwale Medical and Technology City (MMTC) to Ghana,” MMTC said in a statement.

Talks with President Akufo-Addo came after benchmarking visits by Ghanian delegations at MMTC in early September 2022. MMTC is a $2 billion (Ksh200 billion) community owned sustainable metropolis centered around the 5,000 bed Hamptons Hospital located in Butere Sub-County of Kakamega County in Kenya.

MMTC team said Ghanian medical tourists could visit Hamptons Hospital for specialized medical treatment by taking advantage of direct Kenya Airways flights from Accra to Kisumu via Nairobi.

The meeting came days after Mwale met with Kenya’s President William Ruto in New York who pledged to support the investment and thanked Mwale for investing in Kenya and creating jobs in the economy.

“We had the honour to meet with HE President Dr William Ruto and his delegation in New York ,USA to discuss our investments in Kenya. The president pledged full support and thanked Mr Julius Mwale of Mwale Medical and Technology City (MMTC) for investing in Kenya.”

Since its initiation in 2015, MMTC has received admiration from both local and foreign visitors who have toured the project. Unlike several similar high-end projects which have often been dogged with controversy in Kenya, MMTC has not experienced any major challenges.

The project’s success has been attributed to its model of reaching out to locals within the project perimeter and establishing key contacts and relationships. This has seen most of them donate huge tracts of ancestral land to the project to benefit them and MMTC.

MMTC is built with 100% sustainable sources of energy including hundreds of solar-powered streetlights already brightening up freshly paved roads, as well as a 10-megawatt solar power plant that produces clean electricity for the city. MMTC also hosts a 36-hole golf resort with private residences along the golf course.
