Kibera to Get Over 3,000 Houses

Nairobi, as it embarks on the second phase of the slum-upgrading project in the area

The government is to put up more that 3,000 housing units in Soweto in Kibera, Nairobi, as it embarks on the second phase of the slum-upgrading project in the area.

The 3,072 houses comprising one, two and three rooms each will come with a kitchen, toilet and bathroom. They are scheduled for completion in two years and will cost Sh6.5 billion.

The government two weeks ago handed over 822 houses to their new owners following the completion of the first phase that was designed as a pilot project to assess the viability of the plan.
