“The economic and social future of Kenya depends on us making our towns work. This can be achieved through commitment, enthusiasm and access to opportunities to all Kenyans.” The Cabinet Secretary for Land, Housing and Urban Development Prof. Kaimenyi said this during the Consultative Forum on the National Urban Development Policy (NUDP) held at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).
The CS further added that the State Department of Housing and Urban Development will join hands with the County Governments in order to achieve the key objectives towards implementing the Urban Development Policies.
