Lands and Housing CS Alice Wahome has revealed that over 100,000 affordable housing units are currently in the process of being constructed across various regions of the country. This ambitious affordable housing project aims to address the pressing housing shortage in the country and uplift communities.

During the unveiling of the Ministry’s Strategic Plan for 2023-2027, CS Wahome emphasized the significance of this initiative, stating, “The development will bridge the 2 million housing deficit for the growing population in urban areas.” She further added, “The aim is to create affordable housing for low and middle-income citizens while creating job opportunities for over 1 million Kenyans.”

The strategic partnership involves key figures such as Generali Nixon Korir, Joel Arumonyang, and Charles Hinga Mwaura, who are dedicated to overseeing the successful implementation of this monumental project.

CS Wahome highlighted the multifaceted benefits of the Strategic Plan, including job creation, enhanced revenue collection, and improved livelihoods for citizens. She also assured the public of the Ministry’s commitment to issuing title deeds to all properties by 2027 to safeguard citizens from land fraud.

With the National Housing Corporation spearheading the initiative to construct 110,000 units through direct construction and strategic partnerships, Kenya is taking significant strides towards meeting the escalating demand for decent and affordable housing.
