In the first 100 days of her administration, Governor Gladys Wanga has made good of her promise to tackle the housing crisis in Homa Bay. Through collaboration with the National Government, under the National Housing Corporation (NHC), Homa Bay County recently signed an MoU that will see the development of over 400 affordable housing units on an 11-acre tract in Homa Bay town. The houses will be put up in phases. Some 110 units will be built in the first phase that will take 12 months. The units to be constructed at Makongeni include 40 two-bedroom houses, 40 one-bedroom and 30 studios.
The project, expected to begin in December, will also include the construction of a level-three health centre and the possibility of commercial property for future residents.
The partnership between NHC and the county will stimulate economic growth by providing job opportunities for local youths and using local materials and labour. The project will also include the construction of a level-three health centre and the possibility of commercial property for future residents.
The affordable housing units will provide housing options for residents who may not have otherwise been able to afford them. The project is expected to help address the housing shortage in the area and uplift the living conditions of the community.
