  • How far would you go to meet your soul mate?

    Well, people will go to great lengths to find love and flying to a different continent to meet the person they’ve had an online relationship with is one way to go about it.

    That’s the route American citizen, Benjamin, chose to take. Divorced and ready to love again, the 33-year-old father of one, noted that he hadn’t much luck with meeting women from his hometown, Arizona, so he broadened his search and found Akinyi (25).

  • The two flirted online for a while and fell in love until Benjamin decided it was time to fly to Kenya to see if Akinyi was the one meant for him.

    The couple is featured on TLC‘s reality show 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, which is currently in its third season.

    • The new season follows seven Americans who are taking their digital romances to the real world, and meeting their online loves in person for the very first time!

      “After investing their time, money, and hopes and dreams on a fairytale romance—will these relationships end in proposal or heartbreak?” read a review on the media house’s website.

      Benjamin packed for his first-ever international trip to meet Akinyi in Kenya and ask her parents for her hand in marriage.

      Benjamin will be the first white man to visit his 25-year-old girlfriend village in Kenya.

    AKinyi (25) will feature in an episode of TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days

     

    In a preview of the couple’s journey, Akinyi references to her brother who she describes as overprotective, “My brother wants to keep an eye on you.”

    When the Arizona native meets the brother he is warned, “If you want to marry my sister, you need me, you need me a lot.”

    Here is the video preview of the episode that is yet to air:

Uhuru’s housing project in limbo as Treasury CS says there is no money

Published

on

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s pet project of affordable housing for the country is facing financial turbulence.

This comes after National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yattani admitted before a parliamentary committee that the government may not allocate money in the next financial year due to a dip in national revenue collection.

After President Uhuru Kenyatta was sworn in for his second and last term in 2017, he announced his Big Four agenda for the country which include, manufacturing, universal health coverage, food security and affordable housing.

Under the housing, the President outlined his government’s plan to construct at least 500,000 housing units across the country by 2022.

To construct 100,000 units, the government requires about Sh45 billion so as to attract investors to pump in more money into the programme.

But while appearing before the Transport, Public Works and Housing Committee of the National Assembly Thursday, Mr Yattani noted that his ministry is facing financial difficulties and that he cannot guarantee the availability of the funds required for the project.

“We may not provide anything in the next financial year,” Mr Yattani told the committee chaired by Pokot South MP David Pkosing.

Transport, Public Works and Housing Cabinet Secretary James Macharia, who also appeared before the committee, noted that the government now intends to bring onboard the Saccos.

According to Mr Macharia, 228 units of the 1,370 units being the first phase along Park road in the city’s Ngara estate, have been completed and handed over to the government.

The projected completion of the entire project is December this year.

In the current financial year, Sh5 billion has been set aside for the programme and will be fully disbursed after Mr Macharia complained that out the allocation, only Sh1 billion has been given out.

Mr Macharia told the committee that it was regrettable there will be no money to fund the President’s legacy project noting that if the requested amount was availed, the country would be having 130,000 units.

He noted that given the reality that the country may not have the money required, it may be prudent to explore the mortgage culture and rope in the low-income bracket.

“Currently there are about 25,000 mortgages in the country, which by any standards is quite low. This culture needs to change. The ministry is encouraging investors to come in and take risk by putting up houses for sale,” Mr Macharia said.

He noted that the government will provide the required land, infrastructure, water and power among other things to support the investors in this.

“With all this provided, the cost of putting up houses might go down by up to 40 percent. This is the strategy that we want to use,” he said.

Mr Yattani explained to the committee that the Kenya Mortgage Refinance Company (KMRC) will also play a key role in boosting the success of affordable housing programme.

KMRC was incorporated in April 2018, to provide secure long-term funding to primary mortgage lenders (Banks and Saccos) in order to increase availability and affordability of housing loans to Kenyans.

Mr Macharia told the committee that the take-off of the project faced setbacks due to delays in the implementation of mandatory contribution and lack of support from the public as provided for in the Finance Act, 2018.

The law had made it mandatory that workers contribute 1.5 percent of their basic salaries with their respective employers contributing a similar figure to finance the project.

However, the Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE) obtained court orders to suspend the implementation of the mandatory contribution.

Before the matter could be determined in court, President Kenyatta while leading the country to mark Jamuhuri Day celebrations on December 12, last year, he decreed that changes be made to the Finance Act to make the contribution voluntary.
