President William Ruto has appealed to Kenyans to support the housing levy, noting that the fee will make the Affordable Housing Programme a success.

The Head of State noted that his aim is to give low-income earners, especially those living in slums, a chance to own homes. 

He explained that the programme will also create jobs for hundreds of thousands of the youth in the country. 

“It is our responsibility to contribute to the housing levy that will help us ensure those without decent homes become homeowners,” he said. 

He made the remarks on Sunday during the Salvation Army Centenary celebrations at the Ulinzi Complex in Nairobi County. 

President Ruto also urged Kenyans with arable land to take advantage of the various government’s agricultural initiatives to increase productivity. 

This, he explained, will help the country to achieve its food security goals. 

“As a government, we have done our part with the provision of adequate and affordable seeds and fertiliser,” he said.
