A bill was introduced in parliament by Kenya kwanza government with an aim of deducting 3% from every Kenyan salary terming it as a house levy. This has left many confused and disagreeing with the bill but the president openly said it was for the benefits of Kenyans.
Regarding the house levy many believe that the government want you to save the 3% and after sometime you will own your own house. Alfred Koech posted on his Facebook page calculating for Kenyans saying through paying the levy you can only own the house after more than 90 years.
This attracted Karen nyamu attention who fired back while explaining how the housing levy will work. She asked Koech to stop spreading propaganda because blogging also needs some brain. She explained that the levy is for funding the affordable housing project and you get back your money doubled by the government after seven years.
She made it clear that someone will not get a house in return unless they pay through a mortgage.
