The President continued by reaffirming his position that the Housing Project started by his administration does not only build affordable houses but also provides employment for the youth.
“The housing project only has two aims, It’s not just to build more houses but to create more employment opportunities,”
“It will help youths get jobs, Kenyans will get houses and live in respectable places where there is water, electricity and roads. As for now we have about 6 million Kenyans living in slums and we must be concerned about them,” said the President
Last week President William Ruto confirmed that 70,000 units are at their advanced stages. “The Affordable Housing Project is on course. So far, 70,000 units are at advanced stages of construction across the country.” he said
