Affordable housing initiative gains momentum as 39 counties show support

The rollout of the National Government’s affordable housing program has received significant support, with 39 counties either providing land or signing Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) to aid the initiative.

During the laying of the foundation stone for the Ruiru Affordable Housing Project, Kings Boma Estate, Kiambu County President Ruto stated that his administration’s strategic goal is to increase access to high-quality housing options nationwide.

“Our strategic focus is on expanding access to quality dwelling places at affordable cost in the country. This transformative Plan also presents opportunities for employment and wealth creation to millions of Kenyans struggling to put food on the table,” Ruto said.

According to Lands, Housing, and Public Works Cabinet Secretary Zachariah Njeru, the government has recently commissioned projects in Nairobi County such as Mukuru Met Site and Kibera Soweto B.

Additionally, the Mavoko Sustainable Housing Project (SNP) is set to provide 463 housing units and other facilities to citizens.

Last week, President William Ruto launched the Homa Bay Affordable Housing Project in Homabay County.

CS Zachariah Njeru praised the participating counties for their partnership and urged remaining counties to support the program, which aims to provide affordable and dignified living for Kenyans, particularly those living in informal settlements.

During the launch of the Kings Boma Estate, Housing PS Charles Hinga praised the President for his commitment to the project, highlighting that it addresses the needs of Kenyans through access to decent housing.

The project’s developer, Kings Developers, has committed to investing KES 2.8 billion and working on projects that will support women and the Jua Kali industry.

The project will be completed in 30 months and will directly and indirectly employ 5000 Kenyans, according to Kings Developers Director Yusuf Hassanali. The project will include 1050 homes with prices ranging from KES 1.25 to 4.7 million, 40 studio apartments, 30 one-bedroom units, 900 two-bedroom units, and 80 three-bedroom units. It will also include a borehole, a children’s play area, a community hall for social gatherings, and other social amenities.

Kings Developers recently turned over a finished project in Rongai, and is on course to complete another project in Nakuru in the next six months.
