Qatar to aid in the development of 140,000 housing units

Ambassador of the State of Qatar, Jabor Ali Al-Dosari said his government is ready to invest 3.5 billion US dollars to go towards the initiative which is under the government’s big four agenda of affordable housing/COURTESY

NAIROBI, Kenya Jan 31 – Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi has lauded the move by the Qatar government to aid in the development of 140,000 housing units in the country.

While making the announcement when he paid Muturi a courtesy call, the Ambassador of the State of Qatar, Jabor Ali Al-Dosari said his government is ready to invest 3.5 billion US dollars to go towards the initiative which is under the government’s big four agenda of affordable housing.

Muturi encouraged for further partnership noting that it would strengthen the already existing bilateral relations that the two countries share.

He cited the enhanced relations that Kenya and the State of Qatar enjoy especially after the historic state visit by the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al- Thani last year in April.

Al-Dosari also took the opportunity to invite Muturi to attend the 140th Assembly of the Inter Parliamentary Union (IPU), which will be hosted in April.

Parliament of Kenya has over the years greatly benefited from IPU forums especially through capacity building for MPs and its staff.

The Inter Parliamentary Union is an assembly of legislatures across the globe where members of Parliament drawn from various member states meet at least four times in a year to engage in political dialogues and delivery of concrete action geared towards safeguarding peace while driving positive democratic change among member countries.
