Ruto announces plans to transform Kibera sulm into into a residential estate in ten years time.

President William Ruto has said that Kibera, one of the biggest slums in Africa, will experience a complete overhaul to become an estate in the next 10 years.

While addressing church service in Lang’ata on Sunday, Ruto outlined his vision for Kibera, stating, “We have ambitious plans to transform Kibera into a well-developed estate as part of our broader initiative to eliminate slums across Kenya. In the next 10 years, Kibera will be an estate.”

Kibera slum is the largest slum in Africa and the third largest in the world.

The president said the transformation will be achieved through the government’s ambitious Affordable Housing Project which seeks to provide Kenyans living in informal settlements decent homes.

He further noted that the mega project will significantly aid in providing jobs for many youths in the nation.

“That plan was introduced for two reasons. First it’s not about the houses but about the jobs. Our plan is that we will have constructed at least 200,000 houses to ensure that all young people in Nairobi have jobs,” he said.

“We also want to remove people from slums. Especially here in Kibera. In ten years there will be no slum here, we will have transformed it into an estate.”

While acknowledging challenges and misunderstandings surrounding funding, President Ruto expressed confidence that people would eventually embrace this transformative vision.

The Kenya Kwanza regime targets to build at least 250,000 houses every year, for the next five years.
