Urithi housing cooperative society limited Chairman Samuel Maina has urged the newly appointed Lands Cabinet Secretary, Faridah Karoney, to support property ownership, by restoring sanity in the lands sector, and making it easy for owners to acquire their property documents. He said some corrupt cartels in the land sector were a major hindrance to National development and need to be dealt with firmly and decisively.
Maina was speaking at hotel Kunste, Nakuru County while issuing title deeds to members. Over 400 title deeds were issued to members who had purchased land in Nakuru and Gilgil projects which are, Lanet gardens, Portland Heights, Portland 1, 2, 3, Portland Annex, Parkview 3, Bonita Gardens 2 and Highway Garden.
Maina said in their 5 year journey, they have been able to offer opportunities in different counties, Nakuru being one of the leading with unique investment openings.
“Today’s title deed issuance ceremony marks over 6,500 title deeds issued and over 140 land projects that we have handed over so far. Today, we are delighted to issue over 400 title deeds for Nakuru and Gilgil projects which are, Lanet Gardens, Portland Heights, Portland 1, 2, 3, Portland Annex, Parkview 3, Bonita Gardens 2, Jogoo Annex and Highway Gardens,” said the society boss.
Maina, said that he highly commends the Nakuru County government, which has in great measures supported investors and especially those in the real estate sector. He emphasized that Urithi Housing Growth in the County has been as a result of the good partnership and support, as they came in at a time when there was a gap in affordable and legit property ownership, and a need for guidance to Kenyans who were eager to invest, but were skeptical due to the increase in the real estate and property sham in the country.
Maina said as a Housing Co-operative, they have committed and ardently focused on improving their members’ quality of lives by providing affordable investment solutions. “With a membership of over 26,000 and counting, we can proudly say that we have provided diverse and equal investment opportunities to our members who are drawn from all walks of life,” he said.
“We have dutifully walked with our members to both empower and add value to their lives, through investment opportunities that we offer across the country, and through constantly educating them on matters investment,” he added.
He said in line with their Member Empowerment Program, it is their culture and mandate as housing co-operative to educate their members on their concepts, models and products, and in so doing, equip and empower them equally with investment knowledge and the running of the co-operative.
On Urithi’s growth, Maina said that the society can attribute its growth and stability in the sector to the affordable prices in their land and housing projects, and in providing diverse investment opportunities to all socio-economic classes in the country. “We package our products to see to it that all our members, from low to high income earners, youth and the old own something and even fund them through our Urithi Premier Sacco. This gives them a chance to purchase property as they can get low interest funding from the Sacco,” said Maina.
“Our growth has also been out of our commitment to walk with our members who after owning property through us, still ensure that they add value to it from the available Uri-Farm Agribusiness opportunities that we offer like Fish and Green House farming,” the chairman emphasized.
He commended their members across the Counties for their zeal and trust to choose Urithi as their investment choice, for their endless commitment to make Urithi Housing Co-operative Society Limited great, and for placing Urithi in its position as the BEST in the real estate and property sector.
“As our mission to improve the quality of lives of our members by providing decent housing and settlement using innovative technologies dictates, we have faithfully walked the talk and successfully handed over 450 houses to our members. We keep our focus on member service and satisfaction through delivery, even as we plan to hand over more housing projects in Kajiado, Mombasa and Kiambu Counties, as well as issue more than 2,000 title deeds this year,” Maina told members.
