Shelter Afrique Pledges to Support Kenyatta's Housing Plan

By Kennedy Kimanthi

Pan-African home financier Shelter Afrique has committed to help the government realise one of its big four pillars -- affordable housing.

Managing director Femi Adewole said a private-public partnership approach is crucial in such a project to provide solutions to housing problems.

The government has been exploring alternative sources of housing finance to address constraints in accessing funding and management models aimed at reducing risks to allow lower prices for homes.
