The Buxton project is among the sixth affordable housing projects launched this year with others in Homa Bay, Ruiru, and Nairobi's Kibera, Shauri Moyo and Starehe.
In April this year,Mombasa governor Abdulswamad Nassir had demanded for a clear tenant purchase scheme for Buxton estate tenants, before the projects are completed and tenants are let in.
Nassir noted that failure to resolve the matter amicably had continued to raise concerns from buyers and those who were evicted to pave way for the project.
Former Buxton tenants have often complained about what they termed as unclear tenant purchase deals.
However, according to Ochieng, the issue has been resolved as the tenants will get affordable purchase deals.
