President William Ruto has said his government is shifting to a new delivery model for social housing that will relieve millions of ordinary Kenyans of the financial burden of owning a house.
Speaking during the launch of the proposed Kibera Soweto East Zone B Social Housing Project in Lang’ata, Nairobi County, that will construct 4,054 units, Ruto said the Kibera Soweto East Zone B Social Housing Project will allow Mama Mbogas to pay as low as Sh2,400 a month for a one-bedroom apartment under the tenant purchase scheme.
‘We believe this will help upgrade slums, open up the economy and drive our growth.’ Ruto said.
Intex Construction that has 100 years of civil engineering experience in East Africa that has established itself as the leader in the industry, having handed over many iconic projects and built more roads in Kenya than any other company will be in charge of the project.
