1 min read

Housing Principal Secretary (PS) Charles Hinga today announced the government’s proposal to allot Affordable Housing Program apartments to Kenyans on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.

Hinga spoke after President William Ruto’s signing of the Affordable Housing Law into law, highlighting the policy shift to address deposit concerns mentioned during public consultations.

Hinga emphasized, “Every situation will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis to assess the amount Kenyans can pay,” underscoring the government’s commitment to inclusivity by prioritizing youth, women, and individuals with disabilities in the housing allocation process.

Applicants are required to apply through the Boma Yangu portal, select their preferred housing units, and save Ksh200 before activation.

The revised law eliminates the previous ten percent deposit requirement, streamlining the application process and making housing more accessible to all.

Furthermore, Hinga outlined plans to revitalize slum areas, citing the construction of 15,000 units in Mukuru kwa Njenga as part of the initiative to uplift living standards.
