Minister John Kaupa

Housing policy reform team established

Minister John Kaupa said the reform will allow for the rental ceiling for National Housing Corporation to be increased to realistic levels.

The Minister told parliament that the housing policy is outdated.

“As a government we must cater for all.”

Kaupa said the ceiling, which was around during the colonial times, was around K7.50 to K128 to K200.

“This is not enough to maintain all the existing properties of the NHC,” said the Minister.

He has directed for the establishment of housing policy reform team, which will lead to the overhaul of the policy.
