HAVE YOUR SAY

CORPORATE REPUTATION

By Thrity Engineer- Mbuthia

www.brandeffectsea.com

Reputation is defined as the beliefs and opinions

held about someone or something. For a corporate

organization, it is the image that one has of a

particular entity. It is an intangible asset, one which

is extremely difficult to measure but critical to have.

Dr. Marietjie Theron - Wepener, marketing and

stakeholder relations director at the University of

Stellenbosch Business School has written an article

entitled, ‘Corporate Reputation – build it, guard it,

gain from it.’

She talks of the importance of trust, which is a

major element in building a good reputation. The

trust primarily exists between the organization and

its customers. Generally speaking, customers make

decisions to buy products from reputable companies,

companies they can trust and rely on.

This would not be more important than in the

construction and property development industry.

Property development is a very investment - heavy

field where millions of shillings are involved. Buyers,

investors and clients alike are all focused on getting

value for money.

A buyer of a residential property is looking at how

reputable the construction company is, in order

to ensure he gets a house that is well finished and

meets his expectations. Who would want to buy a

residential property from a developer who is known

to take short cuts and installs sub - standard fittings?

Similarly, the client wanting an extension of

classrooms at a university is keen on time of

completion of project, quality of work done, safety

and one that can produce a return on investment as

fast as possible.

In the same light, investors who are putting in

financial muscle into development projects are also

looking for return on investments, hoping that these

returns will not only be within market rates but can

beat market rates.

Again, this is only possible by guarding one’s

reputation, and being able to command high prices

in an environment where everyone is looking for the

best possible deal.

So how does one build a good corporate reputation?

Here are seven tips to help you get started.

1. Be known for quality work, and let your

satisfied customers be your ambassadors.

Word of mouth is extremely powerful and you

should request for recommendations from your

happy clients. Use these recommendations

on social media as you build your brand and

organization reputation.

2. Honour your promises – stick to timelines

and be known for achieving timely project

milestones and project completion.

3. Invest in marketing your organization

and not just your projects. You need to build a

powerful brand as a developer as a long term

strategy, such that once your organization

is well known, the brand equity developed,

works in your favor for all projects.

4. Use digital media especially social media.

It is estimated that there are over 4.5million

Facebook users in Kenya. Social media is a

powerful tool to not only create visibility but

also pass on information, and build credibility.

Get a reputable expert to help out in order

to fully maximize opportunities from social

media.

5. Use communication tools like PR to ensure

that corporate social activities are not only

done but also shared with stakeholders. Giving

back to the community gives an organization

a positive reputation, showing the care and

concern it has for the less fortunate in society.

6. All organizations are in business to make

profits. Make the profits in an honest way.

In the short term, it may seem more profitable

to put up a block of single room apartments

with no windows and shared bathroom

facilities in order to contain costs. Ask yourself

what that is doing to your reputation – would

you really want to be known as the developer

who has no empathy for human beings, no

ethics or no values?

7. Another way of building corporate reputation

would be to participate in industry forums,

volunteer for leadership positions within

these forums and increase the brand equity.

Get known and be known for the values that

build a positive reputation.

These are just some of the things that one can do

to build corporate reputation. One thing is for sure,

as much as reputation is an intangible asset, it can

be a key factor in customers interacting with you or

shunning you. Good corporate reputation acts as a

competitive advantage, and having a competitive

advantage means you are one step ahead of your

competitors. Just what you need for growth and

success. What are you waiting for? Build your

corporate reputation and stand out from the crowd!

AMENDMENTS TO LAND LAWS EXPECTED TO

STOP WARS BETWEEN LANDS MINISTRY AND

COMMISSION FOR EFFICIENT TRANSACTIONS

INCESSANT CONFLICTS DUE TO

LEGAL INCONSISTENCIES

The wars between the Lands Ministry

and the Commission have been rather

public and annoying. And various

practitioners and landowners will

recount endless tales of frustrations with

transactions tabled for consideration

since the Land Commission came to

office over two years back.

Uncertainties are the rule. One is never

sure that documents tabled will ever

be processed. One is left to speculate

on whom, between the Ministry and

the Commission, should act on such

documents. While these uncertainties

were previously restricted to Ardhi

House, they are slowly emerging at

County level after assumption of office

by the Commission’s organs, the County

Land Management Boards.

I have found county land registrars

anxious about who should now act on

disputes presented. Other practitioners

report subtle supremacy wars between

county land officers in charge of

land offices and the county land

management board secretaries. Such

competition is unhealthy for technical

processes.

For lack of background knowledge,

many observers have attributed the

overt and subtle wars in the Ministry to

personalities, especially at the level of

Cabinet Secretary and the Commission

Chair. That isn’t so. Remember that the

Commission assumed office during the

tenure of Permanent Secretary Dorothy

Angote. The previous Minister James

Orengo had then moved on, leaving

Angote to hold sway at the top. There

were differences with the Commission

till she left. In came Charity Ngilu and,

with her political flair, the wars escalated.

Now there is Fred Matiang’i. It’s just that

he has a different style but insiders

will tell you that subtle wars remain.

And they can’t end till we confront

the situation. But what has been the

problem?

LAND LAWS DONATED TECHNICAL

POWERS TO LAND COMMISSION

While the national land policy intended

to give Kenyans a technical land

commission, the constitution changed

that. A good read of article 67 reveals

that the constitution bequeathed us a

commission with largely advisory powers

of advising, recommending, assessing,

encouraging or monitoring processes

without direct implementation roles.

But during law making, stakeholders in

the sector, informed by their previous

frustrations with the Lands Ministry,

donated some technical roles to the

commission through the Sub-Article 67

(3) which allows parliament to prescribe

any other functions to the commission.

Pundits however observe that if the

constitution had so intended, it would

have specifically spelt such roles in its

main text. In trying to mitigate some of

the dramatic proposals, serving officers

in the technical departments of the

Ministry tried to temper some of the

provisions. But none of these groups,

and later parliament, had sufficient

time to effectively read and review

the entire text of the three bills (Land,

Land Registration and National Land

Commission) for harmony and technical

rationale before enactment.

The enacted bills therefore ended up

with gaps and contradictions. Within

one technical process, for instance land

registration, the statutes would give the

commission some role and leave the

other to the Cabinet Secretary. In fact, the

Land Act provides that the commission

will manage settlement programmes

while leaving the Land Adjudication

Act, which gives the Cabinet Secretary

powers to appoint officers to deal and

oversee such programmes, unrepealed.

The contradictions are obvious to

anyone who takes time to objectively

read the three laws. And because of

the continuity required by the technical

nature of the processes in the Lands

Ministry, separate command centres

will continue to occasion conflicts.

Services are therefore at an all-time

low. This won’t be cured by boardroom

discussions or judicial interpretations.

Indeed, in a recent high level discussion

on the matter, I illustrated the dilemma

through the analogy of the legendary

two mothers who claimed the same

child. Their attempts to each claim half

the child convinced observers that none

of them meant well. It is so for the Lands

Ministry and the Commission. Their

continued claims to maintain mandate

despite the inefficiencies and delays in

service delivery occasioned by the legal

muddle can only be read as self-serving.

They mustn’t be allowed to hold the

country hostage any longer.

PARLIAMENT NEEDS TO EFFECT

AMENDMENTS

During our discussions, I pleaded with

the National Assembly and the Senate

Committees on Land to reflect upon the

land governance challenges we have

observed for over two years and boldly

amend the law for Kenya. Because of

the donated roles, the Commission has

ended up diverted from its key function

of managing public land.

Little wonder that irregular practices

have visited us much more furiously

during the commission’s tenure of

office. It would therefore serve Kenya’s

land administration well if Parliament

considered the provisions intended

to clarify the roles between the Lands

Ministry and the Land Commission while

scrutinising and discussing the Land

Laws (Amendment) Bill 2015 which is

currently before the National Assembly

Departmental Committee on Lands.

EVICTION CLAUSES WILL UNDERMINE

REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT

Parliament will however need to be

quite careful with provisions within this

bill which appear to embolden land

invaders and could fuel invasions into

private land in future. The provision

on evictions particularly provides that

unlawful occupiers of private land will

only be evicted after the owner has

given the unlawful occupier a notice of

not less than three months in a language

understood by the occupier, published

the notice in at least two newspapers of

national circulation and also displayed

the notice in not less than five strategic

locations within the occupied land.

The notice must also specify any terms

and conditions for the removal of

buildings and the reaping of crops on

the land. The unlawful occupier is also

at liberty to go to court to contest the

notice. The court may cancel, vary or

add conditions to the notice and can

also suspend the notice or order for

compensation.

This all sounds like shifting the burden

of proof to the land owner and not the

unlawful occupier. If the provision is

upheld in the final law, then we may

witness more land invasions and trespass

in the urban and rural areas in future.

Indeed, given such legal provisions, a

suave mobiliser would frustrate any

land owner into submission by either

contesting the arguing that they never

saw/received the notice, arguing its

contents or just getting a good lawyer

to keep procrastinating court hearings.

The provision appears to contradict

article 40 of our constitution on the

protection of rights to property. If not

struck out or modified, it will be used to

frustrate real estate development in the

country.

KPDA PARTNERSHIPS

WHAT’S NEW IN UPPERHILL?

KGBS Board members with

trainers from the Green

Building Council of South

Africa and trainees during the

2015 Society’s Launch.

Right now land is a predominant focus

especially in Upperhill where an acre

going for more than Kshs. 500million.

The general need to develop is there

but is the infrastructure ready for these

developments?

The Kenya Green Building Society (KGBS) is an independent, non-profit organization registered with the World

Green Building Council (WGBC) to serve as the green building movement leading the transformation of the

Kenyan property industry to environmental sustainability.

Road infrastructure will generate the

rates to be higher now that the first

phase of the Upperhill rehabilitation of

roads project is at 7%, physical progress

shy to its completion. In addition, Kenya

Urban Roads Authority (KURA) recently

signed an agreement with the Japan

International Cooperation Agency

(JICA) to expand Ngong road from The

Junction to the Kenya National Library.

The society’s mission to advocate and educate on green building design principles, practices, technologies and

operations while enabling objective measurement and recognition of green buildings by use of a set framework

in order to achieve an environmentally socially and economically progressive built environment, arose from the

need to assist Kenya in the combat of Climate Change, which is a global challenge. We only have 1 earth and

we believe humans can overcome this challenge if we put our efforts together from our diverse industries and

backgrounds.

As the KGBS is by and for the people of Kenya, we prioritized by finding a local common ground yet internationally

benchmarked on what we call “green” so that the greenness of a building can be measured and thereafter

There is now pressure to ensure all

other areas of infrastructure are in line

with this and government agencies

like Nairobi Water and Sewerage

Corporation are heeding the call. They

are seeking investment of Kshs. 2 billion

to increase the water supply to 50,000

cubic metres in 18 months for the entire

Nairobi area.

Currently, water being received from

Kabete Pumping Station is insufficient

for Nairobi and that is why there is a

water crisis all over the city. Some areas

have been reported to go months

without water and forced to buy or sink

a borehole to mitigate the scarcity.

There is need for the Athi Water Services

Board to identify more sources of water

to solve this crisis. We also hope through

the 2016 International Congress of

African Water Association (AFWA) more

solutions will be identified.

On the other hand there is the looming

issue of sewerage which property

owners are as much to blame as the

sewerage company.

Cases of sewer leaks are usually

attributed to the congestion of sewer

pipes caused by property owners. It is

our responsibility to maintain sewer

service laterals from their buildings

until the pipes transition onto public

property.

At UHDA, infrastructure is at the top

of our list of priorities where our role

helps to shape the services the national

and county government provides. We

believe that if associations such as ours

continue to raise such issues directly to

the authorities, we will have less cases of

poor service delivery.

For more information about us, write to us

at upperhill@uhda.or.ke or simply visit our

website and get to know us better on www.

uhda.or.ke .

continuously improved. This basic starting point has allowed KGBS to chart Education and Awareness programs

reaching out to all Kenyans covering all age groups from nursery children to adults in different sectors. The Green

Apple Day of Service has recorded a total of 2120 volunteers since the year 2012 to date as well as 26 schools

getting involved to ensure a clean, safe, healthy and productive environment for the future generation. KGBS has

also trained and/or educated up to 72 professionals including assessors and faculty members from the industry on

green building technologies of which some are already Green Star Accredited Professionals while others are in the

process of completing the course and being awarded the internationally recognized accreditation.

Our Passion for green building excellence has allowed us to be part of a global solution rather than part of the

problem. Thus far, we have managed to pool like-minded professionals to get to this stage and we need you going

forward! Be part of this this great movement today and influence the future.

NCC BUILDING PERMITTING APPROVALS

NAIROBI CITY COUNTY GOVERNMENT BUILDING

PERMITTING APPROVALS ACTIVITY REPORT

JANUARY – DECEMBER 2015

PERMIT APPLICATION ACTIVITY BY LOCALITY

NCC BUILDING PERMITTING APPROVALS

SOURCE

The 2015 Planning Permitting Activity

Report provides a summary of statistical

information on planning permitting

activity in Nairobi from January to

December 2015. During this reporting

period, only statistics from the Nairobi

City County Government are used as

references.

This report uses standardized data

submitted to Nairobi City County.

The report highlights information on

applications received, development

locations, types and values, department

revenue from applications and permit

processing performance.

INTRODUCTORY SUMMARY ON THE

REPORT

A total of 2408 planning applications

were reviewed during this period. Other

key statistics from this report include:

1. Value of approved permits

representing over Kshs. 152.2

billion worth of development

projects and permitting fees

collected over Kshs. 1.5 billion;

2. The highest value of building

PERMIT APPLICATION ACTIVITY BY LOCALITY

There are more development activities on the Western side of

Nairobi compared to the Eastern side probably because of the

extra space available and the demand for housing. The highest

permits were approved in the areas of Karen, Westlands,

Industrial Area, Parklands and Eastleigh.

1. Karen has the highest percentage of permits localitywise.

This would be as a result of the ongoing

construction of the Southern Bypass connecting the

Nairobi - Naivasha Highway to Mombasa Road. The

bypass has also enabled easy and fast commuting to

the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and Wilson

Airport. The neighbourhood has an organized road

network, with properly connected entry and exit routes

that lead to and from Nairobi’s CBD. This would be one

of the factors the developers might have considered

due to proximity and thus convenience. The high

New Courtyard at the Aga Khan Hospital, Nairobi.

submitted for the planning

approval by NCCG was Kshs. 8,

043, 570, 000 by Avic International

Real Estate and the maximum

submission fee paid was Kshs.

131, 250, 000. On average the

estimated value of development

was Kshs. 63, 259, 238 and that of

the submission fee was Kshs. 643,

668;

3. 10.59 % of the total number of

buildings permitted/approved

were located in Karen, 4.942%

in Westlands and 4.776% of the

permits approved were located in

the Industrial area;

4. Building Classification as based on

the Building Code – 1911 buildings

(79.4%) in Domestic Class

(domestic building, commercial

developments and offices), 311

buildings (12.9%) in Public Class

(religious buildings, social halls,

libraries, schools, etc.) and 186

buildings (7.7%) in Warehouse

Class (factories, industries and go

downs).

A comparative analysis is provided for

the performance of all 4 quarters of the

year.

number of permits in the Karen area are also very

likely due to the fact that rent or property owning in

Karen attracts high revenue. This is a likely factor that

developers considered in achieving better return on

capital;

2. Lavington has the least number of permits amongst

the top 10 areas of development regardless of being

very close to the CBD. Embakasi and Kilimani areas

attract fewer developments due to traffic and building

congestion. Lavington may be a discouraging location

for developers to set up office buildings as more and

more businesses are opting to be headquartered in the

Westlands are which has more space to accommodate

offices.

NB: Localities that do not appear in the graph had less than 1%

permit approval activity.

DWELLING RELATED ACTIVITY ACROSS NAIROBI

Buildings approved included

domestic buildings, commercial

developments, offices, religious

buildings, social halls, libraries,

schools, factories, industries and

go downs. The following graph

identifies permit applications that

relate to various building classes.

1. It can be noted that 79.36% of the planning submitted

under the building class category were domestic

class which includes domestic buildings, commercial

developments and offices. This can be majorly attributed to

numerous emerging businesses, including but not limited

to foreign investors and SMEs which have increased the

demand for offices;

2. Another major contributing factor is rapid urban

population growth. According to Kenya National Bureau of

Statistics 2012 - 2013 Kenya National Housing Survey Basic

Report, urban population is projected to grow by 50% by

2030 hence the increasing demand for residential houses.

This has led to more planning for domestic class buildings

by developers.

NCC BUILDING PERMITTING APPROVALS

NCC BUILDING PERMITTING APPROVALS

BUILDING CLASS BY LOCALITY

THE VALUE TREND OF DEVELOPMENT PERMITTED BY THE NAIROBI CITY COUNTY GOVERNMENT

1. Karen has the highest number of

domestic class buildings approved

because it is more of a residential

area;

2. Industrial area topped in planning

related to the warehouse class and

this was mainly due to it being an

area occupied by a large number

of manufacturing companies and

hence the increased need to have

more warehouses to meet the storage

space demand;

3. Westlands is ranked the highest in

terms of public class buildings as

there is more land for expansion.

1. 38% of the buildings

presented for approval

were valued between

ten million and fifty

million. This is mainly

because most of them

are residential rather

than single dwelling or

commercial.

NUMBER OF APPROVALS BY ZONAL USER DENSITY

1. Residential use accounted for

52.91% of the approvals due to a

high demand by Kenyans to own

homes. This is brought about by

the increase in the middle income

earning population who prefer to

incur the cost of buying a home

rather than renting;

2. Residential developments are

more profitable and developers

invest more in residential houses.

Influx of foreign residents in Kenya

has also increased the demand for

residential houses mostly in the

high end areas. This has been a

factor considered by developers;

3. Commercial accounted for 11.67%

of the total number of buildings

approved due to major commercial

banks and supermarkets opening

up branches in Nairobi (Lamudi

Kenya).

2. Quarter 2 and Quarter 3

had the highest number

of permit approvals at

685 buildings and 722

buildings respectively,

with a significant decrease

in the last quarter of the

year to 529 buildings;

THE VALUE TREND OF DEVELOPMENT PERMITTED BY THE NAIROBI CITY COUNTY GOVERNMENT

3. Quarter 2 had the highest

investment in terms

of estimated value of

buildings. Interestingly,

the last quarter of 2015

posted the highest total

submission fee of Kshs.

409, 224, 446;

4. June had the highest

number of permit

approvals.

On average the

number of days taken

gradually increase as

the year goes by.

PERMIT PROCESSING PERFORMANCE

June had the highest

number of approvals, with

405 approvals. According

to sources, landlords had

been earning 23% returns

on let apartments which

was the highest since year

2009. Due to high return

increase over the years the

developers were motivated

into investing more into

developments to enjoy the

profits. This was one of the

factors that led to the high

increase in the number of

approvals this month.

Most of the permits

took more than

one month to be

approved. This

accounted for

54.58% of the total

percentage. This

delay in the approval

process is a cause

for concern and the

Nairobi City County

Government needs

to offer sufficient

explanation as to the

reasons behind this

delay.
