The ministry of infrastructure intends to spend 3 billion shillings in the purchase of doors and windows as part of the housing project spelt out in the government’s Big Four agenda.
The ministry has taked the Jua Kali sector to supply 100,00 doors and 120,000 windows for the Starehe and Shauri Moyo estates in Nairobi County.
Housing Principal Secretary Charles Hinga said that the Ministry has ring-fenced some components used in construction of homes to ensure that the Jua Kali sector can supply inputs to the Program.
“The Jua Kali Sector is a big contributor to employment in the country and a key enabler of the manufacturing sector. We are keen to up-skill them to enable them to contribute to this national development project while supporting their growth,” said Housing Principal Secretary Charles Hinga.
The ministry has called on players in the informal sector to form associations and register to provide construction components and materials for the Affordable Housing Programme.
