President Ruto Announces Rent That Kenyans Will Pay in the Mukuru Kwa Njenga Houses

His Excellency the Head of State President William Ruto presided over the groundbreaking ceremony for the Mukuru kwa Reuben affordable housing project on Monday afternoon.

This is his first project as President of the Republic of Kenya, and he also announced good news to Kenyans during his remarks at the high-profile event on Monday.

In his speech, he stated that the Kenyan government's houses will be affordable, with the bedsitter house costing only Ksh 4,000.

A single bedroom as well as a two-bedroom house will cost Kenyans Ksh 5,000 and Ksh 6,500, respectively, which is a significant savings for Kenya's middle-income earners.

"President William Ruto declares Mukuru Kwa Njenga affordable housing rent: Bedsitters - Sh4,000, 1 Bedroom - Sh5,000, 2 Bedroom - Sh6,500..."

The first priority of this project (affordable housing) is to bring people from Mukuru to live here. The Ksh. 3000 they are paying as rent there will be paid as mortgage here, according to President William Ruto.

According to him, housing was a big part of the political debate we had as a country, and it was a debate on both sides of the aisle. "I look forward to all of us working together to put this plan into action for the benefit of Kenyans," said President William Ruto.

Previously, President William Ruto lifted the ban on genetically modified foods.
