Kenya: Ruto scraps the popular Kazi Mtaani scheme.

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta‘s movement and project, the Kazi Mtaani Programme, has been discontinued by President William Ruto.

He abolished it at the groundbreaking ceremony for Soweto East Zone B Social Housing in Kibra, Nairobi County, with the Head of State also promising the youth a lot.

He stated that he will include the youth in the country’s affordable housing plan. He began;

“Kazi Mtaani is outdated now, the work now is building these houses, and the first people to get jobs in this project will be from Kibra.”

He also stated that the number of youths employed through the Kazi Mtaani program was small.

” The 500 youths per ward hired in the Kazi Mtaani program will be used to construct these homes. You asked for job opportunities, here they are.”

Ruto claimed that his latest move was intended to strengthen the Jua Kali industry.

Mr. Ruto also promised to delegate 40% of the affordable housing work to small business owners.

“The urbanization rate in Kenya is 4.4 per cent therefore we must ensure our people have good and affordable houses. In Makongeni, we plan to construct 55,000 houses.”

The president emphasized that his administration will focus on changing the country’s unknown or informal settlements.
