- Hinga added that Kenyans who are already paying for other houses can transfer ownership to their children.
- "When you get the house, you don't pay stamp duty, we know where we are, and we know where we want to go," he said.
Housing Principal Secretary Charles Hinga has said individuals who wish to acquire units from the Affordable Housing project can only get one.
Speaking during a brief on the proposal at the State House, Nairobi, Hinga said the rule is one Identification card equates to one house.
"We as a government know where we are, and we know where we want to go. If you get a house, you cannot buy more than one unit. One ID, one house," he said.
Hinga added that Kenyans who are already paying for other houses can transfer ownership to their children.
"That money that you are contributing, you can confer the money to them so that by the time they are turning 18 years of age, they will have a unit," he noted.
He also explained that contribution to the proposed housing levy is mandatory, adding the government could confidently get investors for the housing plan, with the assurance that they will be able to pay them after construction is done.
"The housing fund is a mandatory contribution by employer and employee... Then as a country, we are able to go out there to the market and call investors and tell them to bring their money, build those houses en mass and when they finish building, give us the keys, get paid and go," he said.
