Below are some comments from Kenyans.

Gichuru Cibu: “This would be an ‘upgrade’ to so many Kenyan homes…if you are blessed to build a bigger better one, thank your God,”

Wanjiru Njenga: “Those saying it’s better than the slum, do you really believe that a Kenyan living in a shack can afford to have savings in the bank or enough financial connections to raise this amount?

Wanjiru: “There is however a way to help the slum dwellers own such a house. That is through a rent to own plan. Only the government can afford to come up with such plans, however, we all are informed that it would be marred with corruption and time delays,”
