Details have emerged of President Kenyatta’s strategy to secure his legacy-defining Big Four agenda.
A Treasury dossier obtained yesterday by the Star outlined the government’s plan to roll out multi-billion projects, in only four years.
Critics have repeatedly claimed the Jubilee administration could be biting more than it can chew.
The Big Four is grounded on food security, affordable housing, manufacturing, and universal healthcare.
The 2019 Draft Budget Policy Statement proposes to spend Sh5.6 trillion in financial years 2019/20 – 2021/22.
Of this, Sh2.01 trillion will be spent on development to “accelerate growth, create jobs, and reduce poverty.”
On housing, Kenyatta intends to construct 500,000 homes in five lots in four years.
Phase one will see 1,640 units built at Park Road, Makongeni (20,000), Shauri Moyo (5,300), Starehe (3,500) and Mavoko (5,500).
Jubilee plans to build 15,000 units by empowering housing associations, 48,000 by counties, and 78,700 by Nairobi and Mombasa counties.
