Kenyan Government To Construct 250,000 Houses Annually For Low-Income Earners
The Government of Kenya has said the plan of creating a new generation of homeowners under the Affordable Housing Programme is on course.
President William Ruto said the goal of the Government is to construct 250,000 houses every year for low income-earners.
The President has already commissioned 17 850 units in Mukuru, Rongai, and Kibera to ease the housing burden affecting low-income earners.
He said the Programme also targets the over 6.5 Millions Kenyans living in slums and informal settlements.
President Ruto spoke on Wednesday during the ground-breaking ceremony of the Mavoko Affordable Housing Project in Machakos County, South Eastern part of the Country.
He said this confirms the Government's strategic focus on expanding access to quality, spacious, clean, safe, and secure dwelling places at affordable cost in our Country.
"This transformative Plan goes beyond the provision of affordable housing units to presenting opportunities for gainful employment and wealth creation to millions of Kenyans struggling to put food on the table," said President Ruto.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
