250 Kisumu civil ser­vants’ hous­ing units to be com­plete by early next year

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nyanza -

The 250 hous­ing units for civil ser­vants in Kisumu will be com­pleted by early next year. Civil Ser­vants’ Hous­ing Scheme Fund di­rec­tor Joseph Ngayai, while tour­ing the site at Shau­ri­moyo in Kisumu Cen­tral sub­county on Wed­nes­day, said the project is 73 per cent com­plete. He said it is part of the gov­ern­ment’s ef­forts to ad­dress hous­ing short­age for civil ser­vants. The Sh729 mil­lion project was started in July last year. Once com­plete, civil ser­vants will have the op­por­tu­nity to buy the houses un­der a ten­ant pur­chase scheme based on their job groups. Ngayai said based on the pro­vi­sional cost, one bed­room will go for Sh2.5mil­lion, two-bed­room units will cost about Sh4.3mil­lion and three bed­room for Sh6.1mil­lion. He said 40 units will be rented. Ngayai said the con­trac­tor re­quested ex­ten­sion of con­struc­tion pe­riod af­ter do­ing 74 weeks out of the 81 he was to take.
