The construction of Kenya Joho’s Sh6 billion affordable housing project has been rejected by Mombasa politicians and tenants of Butxton estate.
The project which is powered by Governor Hassan was asked to be suspended until it is evaluated.
The group led by Nyali MP Mohammed Ali, former senator Hassan Omar, ward representatives Charles Kitula (Freretown) and Faith Mwende (Port Reitz) had threatened to go to court to halt its implementation of the project.
Mr Omar was particularly surprised at how the public-private partnership was arrived at. This is after the government sign a partnership deal to construct the estate with businessman Suleiman Shahbal who won the tender to build the houses.
Currently, the tenants pay Sh3,700 for a two-bedroom house and Sh2,800 for a one-bedroom house monthly.
