President William Ruto will sign the Affordable Housing Bill on March 19, 2024, reinstating housing levy deductions. Originally scheduled for Monday, the signing has been rescheduled for Tuesday, as per State House.

At an interdenominational prayer service in Trans Mara, Ruto reiterated his commitment to enact the bill, which both chambers of parliament passed recently, incorporating amendments like involving county governments.

Governors, previously concerned about the central government’s housing program infringing on devolved functions, will now establish county liaison committees to supervise program implementation.

Speaking in Kilgoris, the president emphasized the government’s dedication to fulfilling its promises on infrastructure and development projects, signaling positive economic growth.

“Mwaka jana tulikuwa na shida sana; sasa leo nawahakikishia kuwa mwaka huu ndio mtaona maendeleo tukliwaambia,” Ruto said.

President Ruto, Narok Governor Patrick ole Ntutu, and MPs gathered in Ildolisho village for Tourism PS John Ololtuaa’s thanksgiving ceremony.

Governor Ntutu urged for improved roads in Trans Mara, with President Ruto pledging to tarmac major highways like Kilgoris-Mariwa and Lolgorian-Kilgoris.

Near the Nkararo-Enooretet border, President Ruto instructed Interior CS Kithure Kindiki to boost security. Additionally, he inaugurated the Utalii College Ildolisho campus.
