Ongata Rongai, also locally known as Rongai or simply Rongaa, is a settlement in Kenya's Rift Valley Province within Kajiado county. It is a fast developing residential urban aggregation in the outskirts of Nairobi with a currently estimated population of 66,042 and 147,000.
Rongai is noticeable for its serious lack of infrastructure, lighting and social amenities compared to the population it holds. As a matter of fact, it is one of the few fast growing urban centres in the world without a municipal authority. The number of people moving to Rongai keeps going up but the infrastructure stays the same. Traffic pile ups last 3-5 hours every morning and evening and the situation worsens by the day.
This area is home to a number of reputable institutions such as the Africa Nazarene University, Laiser-Hill school, Adventist University of Africa, and Maxwell Adventist Academy. Several bank branches and numerous ATM’s are also found in the area as well as top supermarket chains. Major hospitals found in ROngai include nairobi women’s hospital, ongata rongai clinic, mariakani cottage hospital, Meridian Medical Centre - Ongata Rongai, Aga Khan University Hospital.
