Over 200 Kenyan families will begin living in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s affordable housing project in September.
Transport and Housing CS James Macharia hinted out while assessing the 1st phase that is to house a total of 1,370 Units. Upon completion of the houses that are being constructed by the private sector on government land, they will be purchased by the proposed Housing Fund. The houses will then be offered to the registered members at interest rates of between three to seven per cent.
The government has opened an online portal called ‘Boma Yangu’, where Kenyans who want homes need to register. To be eligible to own a house, one must be a citizen, be over 18 years of age and have a valid national identity card.
President Kenyatta had promised 500,000 affordable houses by 2022. Reports indicate that Ksh2.2 trillion has already been mobilized for the project.
