Urithi Housing Co-operative Society Limited has vowed to continue promoting national cohesion, peaceful co-existence and unity in the country by settling Kenyans in all parts of the country.
The Society’s Business Development Sales and Marketing Manager Fabian Mwangi maintained that the society membership comprises Kenyans from all community around the country.
Speaking at Elangata in Kajiado West of Kajiado County where he had taken members on a tour of the Society’s new farm in the area. The 1,000 Acre of land is dubbed Elangata Miliki.
The Society boss said if Kenyans are properly settled and fed they will have no time to engage in societal malpractices.
He said Urithi bought the arable land to help members to own huge chunks of land as opposed to the current position where they get plots and houses.
“Apart from providing decent and affordable houses and plots, we want also to quench the thirst of Kenyans of owning chunks of land. Those who have been craving to own an acre, five acres or more, now have an opportunity of easily doing so through the Elangata Miliki project,” he said.
He urged Kenyans working in Nairobi and its environment and who have been longing to have their own land which they can make their rural homes to grab the opportunity and purchase the greenery land.
Mwangi said the land is 20 kilometers from the Kajiado-Namanga highway and is ideal for immediate settlement, agricultural activities, livestock rearing, speculation and other uses. He said proposed major road networks that link the area with other towns in the region and the neighboring Tanzania are underway.
The manager said Kenyans working in Nairobi and its environs who will acquire land in the project will have the convenience of driving to the farm, get fresh produce and go back to their workplace without much hustle since the roads are good.
Mwangi said Urithi is offering an introductory price of Kenya shillings 385,000 in cash for an acre. For installment, an acre will fetch Kenya shillings 395,000 with a deposit of Kenya shilling 200,000 with the rest being payable within 6 months. Alternatively, one will be required to deposit Kenya shillings 115,000 to Urithi Premier Sacco which will clear the balance and allow the member to pay the loan within four years.
For five acres, one will be required to pay Kenya shillings 1,750,000 in cash or pay Kenya shillings 1,950,000, in installment with a deposit of Kenya shillings 800,000 and clear the balance in six months. Alternatively, a member seeking to pay through Urithi Premier Sacco will be required to deposit Kenya shillings 300,000 with the Sacco clearing the balance and allow the member to pay the loan within 48 months (4 years).
“This is a lifetime opportunity for those serious in owning a shamba. They cannot afford to miss this golden opportunity,’’ said Mwangi.
