Message from the CEO

KPDA BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Not affordable housing again!

The Engine of KPDA

If you are a Kenyan or are visiting Kenya or are working in

Kenya, then you must be aware of the current administration’s

focus on disseminating 500, 000 affordable housing units by

2022. If you do not, please climb out from under that rock!

Of late, I have been frequently candidly asked, ‘The

Government is all talk and don’t you know that the true focus is

on 2020?’

"Tell people there’s an

invisible man in the

sky who created the

universe and the vast

majority will believe

you. Tell them that the

paint is wet, and they

have to touch it to be

sure.” ~ Gearge Carlin, American author

We cannot afford to be pessimistic about this agenda, we

MUST believe in this agenda and we must believe in the

DELIVERY of this agenda, after all, did you not place the

current administration in office, trusting them to deliver on your

dreams for your country, for you and for your children?

Be that as it may, tough questions must be asked, such as,

what is affordable? How many Kenyans qualify for mortgages

to purchase homes? Of those, how many can actually afford to

service a mortgage at the interest rates in existence and under

the lending systems in place at the moment? For how long shall

the informal workforce be left out of home investment? Is it all

about ownership? Perhaps I am happy renting my home! Do

alternative construction techniques actually work efficiently? Do

the laws of our land support Mama Njeri owning her own home?

All of the above are questions that KPDA has raised with the

Government and they are fundamental concerns that have

to be addressed or else all we (public and private sector) will

be doing is talking about the problem instead of solving the

problem.

This issue of The Developer’s Digest focuses on how the

private sector can be enabled to invest in the Kenyan affordable

housing space. We have also highlighted some of our ‘asks’ as

private developers that if delivered, would give us the ability to

do just that, build affordable homes.

The 2018 KPDA Affordable Housing Conference is a platform

that we are using to educate, engage, inform, advise but most

importantly offer our contribution as the private sector to realise

the Kenyan affordable housing dream for all.

Gearge Carlin, an American author, comedian and philosopher

once quipped, ‘Tell people there’s an invisible man in the sky

who created the universe and the vast majority will believe you.

Tell them that the paint is wet, and they have to touch it to be

sure.’

Let’s not touch the paint.

Housing: Unavailble

and Unaffordable

By The World Bank Group (Kenya Economic Update, April 2017)

Housing and Housing Finance in Kenya -

Unaffordable and Unavailable

Kenya is missing a major opportunity for job creation

and economic growth to formalize the housing

industry and encourage it to better serve low

income households. In Kenya, there’s an estimated

accumulated housing deficit of over 2 million units,

and nearly 61 percent of urban households live

in slums because of limited supply and lack of

affordability.

Given Kenya’s growth and urbanization rates, there

is a critical need to deliver housing at the lower

end of the income spectrum. Property prices in the

formal market have been increasing, with Nairobi

ranked as the highest priced city in Africa, creating

an even greater affordability gap. Prices in 2013

were nearly three times those in 2000, creating fewer

opportunities for low and middle income.

ally work efficiently? Do the laws of our land support

Mama Njeri owning her own home?

Addressing Kenya’s housing shortage and housing

affordability is not just about shoring up basic needs

for the majority of the population, but will also be

good for economic growth, creating jobs, and

deepening the financial sector. Numerous benefits

can be ascribed to improving access to housing

FOCUS ON POLICY

FOCUS ON POLICY

Housing and Housing Finance in Kenya -

finance and thereby housing. Further benefits include improved health, through better and safer construction,

and improved sanitation.

The housing multiplier effect creates jobs for every house or housing unit constructed. Unlocking the

residential housing market through the development of the housing finance market can provide a wide

range of income opportunities through the construction sector and related industries as evidenced in

Colombia, India, and South Africa. The premise is that every unit spent on housing will generate a

multiple amount of benefit for the economy, as it creates jobs through horizontal and vertical supply

chains. This includes jobs in areas such as raw material production, mining, cement production,

timber, and aggregates. In addition, there is also an impact on local economies where the

construction jobs are created, and in the service industries linked to housing, such a mortgage

lending, real estate agents, and retailers of home goods such as furniture or white goods.

Currently,

mortgage

lending is

funded almost

entirely by shortterm

retail and

institutional

deposits and

only a few

financial

institutions have

accessed the

capital markets.

WHAT IS HOLDING BACK AFFORDABLE HOUSING?

A key constraint for low and middle income buyers comes down to limited supply of financing.

Kenya has a dynamic mortgage industry, which is becoming increasingly competitive. A

number of institutions are now in this sector, including banks, microfinance banks and

Savings and Credit Cooperative Organizations (SACCOs).

The mortgage market has grown at around 30 percent annually, based on data from

the Central Bank of Kenya; however, the overall mortgage portfolio remains modest.

Currently, mortgage lending is funded almost entirely by short-term retail and

institutional deposits and only a few financial institutions have accessed the capital

markets.

The appeal of Capital Markets is that they provide the possibility of long-term

funding for housing and reduce the liquidity risk. The potential to harness

large pools of long-term funds (like pensions and insurance) for housing

finance is very attractive and will deal with this asset-liability mismatch,

lengthen the maturity of loans and improve affordability.

Cumbersome property titling/registration processes have often been

one of the main constraints to providing urban land for housing.

Difficulties or delays in obtaining clean titles leads to a decrease in

investor appetite and also prevents households from being able to

secure financing from banks.

IT’S MORE THAN FINANCE

CONSTRAINING AFFORDABLE

HOUSING

A lack of affordable finance is only one of the barriers

to greater supply of affordable housing, and making

financing more available for home purchase or

construction is also only one of the solutions. In addition

to financing, factors that impact overall affordability

includes such factors as the overall construction costs;

the cost of land; ancillary costs such as those associated

with putting in utilities or access roads; and the costs of

maintaining the property.

Land is very expensive in urban Kenya, and it does not help that

speculators are driving prices upward further. Speculative behaviors

have triggered rapid price increases since 2009,

and the absence of tools to limit their impact has

made this a major problem for land markets. The

responsibility for providing this infrastructure is

then transferred to developers who in turn pass

the related cost on to buyers through higher

prices. Reliance on private developers to provide

infrastructure results in inefficient and more costly

solutions. The cost of construction impacts developer

financing and their appetite to move further down

market. The National Housing Survey of 2012 notes

that building materials account for 40 percent of

housing costs.

Construction in Kenya is heavily dependent on the

use of stone and cement, which means that any

price movements or increase in taxation on these

traditional materials will have a significant impact on

the provision of affordable housing. There are also

related construction costs in terms of permit fees

that are constraining factors. The small scale of most

developments also affects housing affordability.

This is due to several factors, including the scattered

developer industry comprising of many individual,

unregistered developers, insufficient equity capital of

many developers more generally, and the challenge

for the land administration to quickly deliver large

volumes of titles. In addition, the possibility of

granting a VAT exemption to affordable housing

developments over 20 units, approved in principle by

the government, has not been applied yet.

Kenya’s devolved system of government means

that county governments are now responsible

for delivering affordable housing at the county

level. County Governments can work with private

sector developers and financiers to deliver

affordable housing, including through Public-Private

Partnerships and Joint Ventures. However, there

are still growing pains with this system leading to

deficiencies in urban planning and stable land use

rules. Some developers have voiced concerns over

lack of clarity on the scope of county functions, as

well as the variances in approval/ procurement

processes across counties. These challenges will

need to be addressed and trust built between the

counties and the financiers and developers.

INNOVATIVE INSTRUMENTS

TO ADDRESS FINANCING CAN

BE CATALYTIC

While not sufficient on their own, financing solutions

can play a catalytic role in stimulating both supply

and demand of affordable housing, and can help

create momentum for other underlying reforms

outside the sector. On the supply side, such solutions

that the World Bank has employed in other emerging

markets include the creation of Mortgage Refinance

Companies (MRCs), the provision of Housing

Finance Guarantees, and developing Public-Private

Partnerships (PPPs) for Affordable Housing.

Focusing on affordability and the provision of

products aimed at informal income can increase the

demand for financial products for housing. Examples

implemented in other emerging markets include

Interest Rate/Down Payment Buy Downs and a

focus on Housing Microfinance through microfinance

institutions and SACCOs. Experiences from these

other jurisdictions is that the creation or focus by

Government on such initiatives can also lead to wide

consultation and the creation of inter- ministerial

committees dedicated to needed reforms for the

affordable housing agenda.

PPPs for the provision and delivery of affordable

housing as well as the attendant infrastructure are

critical in reaching the scale of investment necessary.

There are numerous models on how public and

private sectors work together both in the provisions

of affordable housing and of urban infrastructure.

Having a clear set of guidelines and rules is very

important. Transparency in the process will make it

easier to attract and structure transactions.

A typical PPP allows a private consortium to assume

the financing risk and two or more phases of a

housing project’s lifecycle. This may include the

design and construction phases of the project and

the subsequent maintenance and operation of the

government facility under a carefully contrived longterm

lease.

This is in contrast to the private sector’s traditional

role in urban infrastructure development where its

involvement is limited to providing skilled labor under

short-term contracts, with the delivery of the services

being solely provided by the public authority. It is also

important not to confuse PPPs with privatization, a

situation where responsibility over the delivery of

the public service is fully transferred to the private

partner with little or no government oversight.

Housing finance subsidies can be used as an

incentive for low or informal income borrowers.

It is important, though, that any form of

housing finance subsidy is transparent

and can be carefully targeted. A mortgage subsidy

program, for instance, could operate on the basis

of a buy down of the monthly payment, so in effect

part of the mortgage loan would be paid for by the

borrower and another part by the mortgage subsidy.

The benefit of such is that from the lenders point

of view this is a regular mortgage loan at a regular

price, so is entirely sustainable. From the fiscal

authority point of view, the benefit is the leverage that

can be obtained, because the subsidy only provides

the affordability enhancement without the need to

fully fund the whole mortgage loan.

REGULATORY REFORMS

FOR UNLEASHING HOUSING

FINANCE SUPPLY AND

DEMAND

Standardize mortgage contracts. Standardized forms

and documentation have many benefits, including

making mortgages comparable across financial

institutions, and making it easier to package these

mortgages for sale in the secondary market. An

ancillary benefit of establishing a Mortgage Liquidity

Facility is that its operations would contribute to

the improvement of lending practices in Kenya and

incentivize standardization of terms and conditions

among lenders.

Ensure a conducive regulatory environment for

housing finance products. For instance, a Mortgage

Liquidity Facility that issues bonds as infrastructure

bonds should not be subject to withholding tax and

would be effectively tax exempt. This should not,

however, prevent an assessment of the efficiency of

the income tax exemption of infrastructure bonds,

which can deter, through resulting high prices, nontaxable

pension funds to buy them.

Establish appropriate mortgage foreclosure

regulations. The current Foreclosure Law process

works relatively well in most cases, but the potential

is there for long drawn out cases through the use of

FOCUS ON POLICY

repeated appeals. The recent amendment to the mortgage

law provided a legitimate increase of the protection to

borrowers. It would be useful however to keep the balance

with creditors’ rights to limit possible abuses of the process by

willful defaulters.

Clarify and implement the legal and regulatory framework for

mortgage-backed securities and covered bonds.

The development of fixed rate options, which only capital

markets can hedge, would be highly beneficial for the market

since there is a high reluctance on the demand side to

contract long-term debt on a floating rate basis. The Capital

Markets Authority first needs to complete the legal and

regulatory framework for securitization, which includes drafting

amendments for the tax neutrality of the SPV/trust and

changes to company law and insolvency law.

More work is also needed specifically with respect to using

claw back mechanisms to manage risk. In terms of covered

bonds, the appetite exists among institutional investors for

a secure and transparent instrument, so efforts should be

made toward drafting and implementing a legal and regulatory

framework to support the development of this market.

Create a conducive environment to mobilize long- term

domestic capital and bridge the funding gap. Kenya’s pension

and insurance markets are well developed; with over Kshs. 1

trillion in long-term investment funds, there is strong demand

for high quality investments such as mortgage-related

bonds. A supportive policy framework, improved regulatory

environment, reliable indices etc. are all incentives that can

be used to encourage the active participation of institutional

investors in the market.

The banking sector in Kenya remains largely liquid with

substantial lending headroom in the mortgage sector before it

hits liquidity constraints. Some market practitioners estimated

that banks could double their mortgage portfolio through

further deposit transformation.

Only beyond that would they need to issue long-term

mortgage securities among pension funds or insurance

companies. Even the most active lenders do not see any

urgency to issue, given the currently expensive conditions

through capital markets.

Nevertheless, the matching of assets and liabilities maturity

should receive more consideration by the lenders and the

regulators (including SACCO Societies Regulatory Authority

(SASRA), charged with regulating SACCOs). Several

structural challenges need to be addressed to realize the

potential of the capital markets as a funding source over the

coming years. There must also be a class of investors with

the appetite and capacity for securities backed by mortgages

(most likely insurance companies or pension funds).

Housing and Housing Finance in Kenya -

Unaffordable and Unavailable

ACCOMPANYING HOUSING

FINANCE REFORMS

Housing finance initiatives will be much more

effective and yield better results if the overall

housing and housing finance framework is operating

efficiently. Key actors will only be able to produce

results if the enabling environment is supportive of

affordable housing delivery models. The enabling

environment covers all the processes and steps

that have to be taken in the value chain. It also

covers how effectively stakeholders are able to

Picture: Simone Carroll

interact together towards a common aim. Is the

legal framework appropriate? Is the cost of business

acting as a deterrent? What are the bottlenecks

in the system creating delays and adding costs?

Do investors currently feel that affordable housing

is an opportunity with realistic long- term returns?

No single action will resolve the affordable housing

challenge, but rather a series of small progressive

steps across the housing value chain, which together

can help bring housing into the reach of a larger

proportion of the population.

FOCUS ON POLICY

a. Harmonization of

Government Roles

Clearly define roles of national and county

governments. With devolution, county governments

have been given the responsibilities and functions

for delivering public services at the county level,

including housing delivery. The central government

still plays a role though the Ministry of Transport,

Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development in

terms of overall policy formulation and, in turn, the

counties are responsible for implementation.

However, in practice, there is still insufficient clarity

on who is responsible for what. There needs to be a

clear definition of roles and responsibilities in order

to advance this agenda. At the national level, there

also needs to be better coordination and enhanced

communication between the National Treasury and

the Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing

and Urban Development. There is some level of

communication in the form of a working group, but

the flow of information needs to be formalized and

operationalized to eliminate information gaps and

design effective policy interventions.

b. Institutional Integration

Repurpose NHC and NSSF to play more targeted

roles in extending its reach down market. NHC

could take on a role as a land development agency

specialized in the purchase of land, its improvement,

and its resale to developers or to end–users after

sub-division in clearly titled individual plots. NHC

has a comfortable equity base provided by the

government (to which can be added the latent capital

gains on its land banks), which is not put to use for

low-income housing today as it should.

NHC could issue infrastructure bonds to leverage

its equity, a fairly successful instrument in Kenya,

although probably little used for urban infrastructure.

The conditions of a partnership with the cooperatives

that buy tracks of land for their members could also

be explored.

The NSSF disposes of long-term funds that can

be used for long-term investments. Typically, the

housing investments made by the NSSF have been

accessible only to formal middle to high income

earners; however, the NSSF’s law amendment

in 2013 opened the system to independent and

informal workers. An increase of NSSF contribution

is considered, and a small voluntary savings-for

pension scheme targeting the informal sector was

introduced in 2011. A recent move by the National

Treasury to permit the NSSF to place a percentage

of its assets in financial institutions for onward

lending could also be a means of opening up

mortgages to more low-income borrowers. NSSF

members can borrow at more favorable terms and at

less than market interest rates.

c. Legal and Regulatory

Policies

Large scale investment in the upgrading of land

registries. There is an immediate need to align their

operations with the new land laws; re-issue validated

titles replacing those that are not recognized under

the latter; and to speed up the correction of invalid

records that deeply affect the reliability and credibility

of land registries today. There are also capacity

constraints that need to be addressed, in terms

of quantitative and qualitative staffing as well as

administrative resources.

The recording of large-scale development or

subdivision face bottlenecks due to limited

processing capacity of land administration. These

upgrades need to be carried out alongside the

digitization of records. The expectation is that the

regained reliability of registries will at once eliminate

an important component of the current transaction

costs—the intervention of several lawyers

conducting due diligence checks.

d. Access to Serviced Land

Develop a PPP framework not just for housing but

also for urban land and infrastructure that will set

clear rules for the sharing of cost and profits between

public and private entities. It could provide a tool

for capturing part of the land value appreciation to

contribute to the financing of infrastructure. Such a

framework would be especially useful to guide the

counties newly entrusted with land management

responsibilities, and contribute to build their

capacities in this area. It would help scale up an

approach that, prior to this, has been experimental

through limited sporadic projects.

Establish a clear and transparent pricing

methodology for the land and allocation process.

Given the history of corruption in allocation of public

land, it is necessary to revamp the system and

improve data and information availability particularly

around land management and administration.

Several policy initiatives are currently

underway to address some of these issues,

one of note is the National Land Information

Management System (to be established both at the

to a range of online services from land searches to

online payment of fees/land rent.

Provide basic infrastructure and services on

the land. When infrastructure (water, transport

networks, power, sanitation etc.) is not developed

in parallel with urban expansion and land allocation

or conversion, this responsibility is transferred to

developers which results in inefficient solutions and

more costly options. Provision of urban infrastructure

could also be addressed through PPP transactions

or joint ventures driven by county governments.

Provide incentives for housing construction.

This includes fast-tracking approvals for housing

construction permits and possible waivers or

reduction in fees and taxes associated with housing

construction. For instance, it may be useful to offset

the corporate tax when a developer has to provide

the trunk infrastructure for new construction.

Each of these policy options directly affects the

overall affordability measures, whether it is by

reducing overall construction costs, by reducing the

cost of end user financing, or by extending the term

of end user financing to make it more affordable.

The specific recommendations are by no means

exhaustive and also do not necessarily need to be

implemented together; however, they each touch on

a different affordability challenge and could work in

unison to bring down overall costs.

WHAT ROLE CANS THE

GOVERNMENT PLAY?

Increasingly governments are recognizing their

responsibilities with regards to providing shelter

for their citizens, beyond just political campaign

pledges. In the past, such pledges would have been

to build an extraordinary number of houses in an

unrealistically short space of time. Inevitably those

campaign pledges rarely succeeded.

A smarter approach to the role of government is

one of actively supporting the sector by creating

the right environment for lenders and developers to

thrive. Where needed and if fiscal space permits,

government intervention can also help provide for

social housing in cases where the cost of shelter is

too much for individual households to bear.

In looking at the government’s role, the target of

any housing policy should be to meet the country’s

present and future housing needs.

This can include a range of tenure types from full

market based housing, to rental housing to social

housing (rental or to own). A key consideration

though is the sustainability of any proposal in terms

of how government resources are allocated. There

are numerous examples of misplaced government

housing developments, failed government housing

banks and ineffective housing subsidy mechanisms.

Too often good intentions form government gets

subverted by poor execution. Housing development

is notorious for lack of transparency, and as such

needs to be done in a careful way. The key areas

where government can help in creating the right

a fundamental human need. Decent,

affordable housing should be a basic right

for everybody in this country. The reason is

simple: without stable shelter, everything

else falls apart.” ~ Matthew Desmond

environment are first and foremost on the macro

economic framework. For any form of long term

finance, having low interest rates is the most

effective way to ensure affordability. If interested

rates are low it becomes much easier to extend

lending for a longer period thereby significantly

lowering the cost of housing. In Kenya, inflation

currently stands at just 6.68 per cent which is a

promising position to help bring rates down to single

digits. It is only then that it makes sense to do loans

for over 15 years which offer significantly lower

monthly payment rates.

A second area for government intervention is on

the overall policy environment. This can cover

many things in the case of Kenya, but in particular

the bottlenecks and costs for housing finance and

housing supply. Providing access to land titles and

a secure creditor rights framework for secured

lending is the foundation of any mortgage system.

Policies to facilitate provision of long term financing

instruments, such as those highlighted above, can

have significant leverage effects that expand lending.

Other areas of policy are also critical around urban

planning, provision of infrastructure, tax policy and

housing subsidies.

A third area for government intervention is to

increase the efficiency of processes. Accelerating

mortgage registration and title transfers could have

significant impact on the ability of developers to

reach scale in affordable housing developments

and to better manage their capital and liquidity

constraints. A fourth area where the government can

support housing is to work with the private sector

in attracting financing through catalytic financing

instruments. For example, housing guarantees can

provide comfort to private sector lenders to reach out

to borrowers with informal incomes. MRC’s require

government capital upfront, but otherwise rely on

private investors and financiers (including SACCOs)

to raise capital and expand their pool of lenders.

Subsidizing housing can be a very good way of

sharing economic benefits across society; however

it is important to have a careful design which targets

right segments of the population and a subsidy

which does not last for whole life of mortgage loan.

Because housing is a long term commitment it also

need some special subsidy design to take this into

account. It is really the first few years of a loan where

the fixed monthly payments can out a strain on a

household’s ability to pay. A subsidy should only be

there where it is truly bridging an affordability gap.

Typically, after a few years, household income will

have risen and the fixed monthly payment will be

much more manageable and not require a subsidy.

This is a prime reason why interest rate subsidies

with no time limit can prove very expensive for

the state, and actually have very limited long term

impacts. In considering its role, the Government

of Kenya should balance its fiscal capacity with its

ability to create meaningful change in the housing

sector.

The best approach at present would seem to be

to rely on markets to provide funding while role

of government is limited to improving access to

land, providing basic infrastructure and improving

credit environment. Over time as the system grows

and becomes more relevant to middle and lower

income households, some form of subsidy could be

considered, targeted at the most needy.

Rolling Mills Limited

Mabati Rolling Mills Ltd (MRM) is the largest producer of flat & long steel

products in the East and Central Africa Region. It is the flagship company

of the SAFAL Group, the largest steel manufacturer in Africa. MRM

has continuously held a leading position in the steel industry for over

four decades providing roofing solutions in this region and is the first to

introduce Zinc Aluminum coating technology in Africa (Zincal).

Safal Group, was incorporated to consolidate the operations of several

allied operations in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Rwanda,

Zambia, Angola, Malawi, Mozambique and South Africa.

• Cold rolled steel sheets and coils

• Galvanized steel sheets and coils

• Aluminium-zinc coated sheets and coils

• Pre-painted steel sheets and coils

• Light gauge steel roofing structures

• Accessories and associated roofing solutions

• Stone coated roofing tiles

Since its inception in 1961, MRM has invested billions in research and

innovation, setting up a manufacturing plant, modernizing its operations

and creating unmatched roofing & building solutions as they shelter

Kenyans.

1. What does affordable housing mean to

MRM?

Our vision at MRM is to be the premier provider of roofing and

building solutions in Kenya for all.

Affordable housing means innovating solutions that allow

homeowners to access a world class roof.

The solution provided must be significantly cheaper than

other existing alternatives.

2. Are MRM products ‘affordable’

and how would you justify this?

Are there any technologies

that your products provide

important health, energy,

water and environment

benefits?

This has already been achieved by our use of

steel roofing solutions that have been proven to be

almost 50% cheaper than the nearest alternative.

For instance our unpainted corrugated roof solution

Dumuzas is cheaper than grass thatched roofs and our

colored steel tiles are more durable than clay tiles both in

terms of product life cycle cost.

in your project. We work very closely

with professionals in the building industry

to train and educate on the appropriate

approaches in roof design considerations.

We have encountered many cases of wrong

suppliers who are obsessed with quality – like

MRM!

4. Are there any government

interventions you would

recommend as incentives to

Of these interventions, which

would ease the supply of

materials for affordable

housing in Kenya.

Yes there are a few areas where we have been

lobbying at the industry level through the different

avenues;

1. Construction materials are heavily taxed in

Kenya. The government could reduce the

cost of building materials significantly by

reducing the many taxes that burden home

builders in Kenya.

2. More aggressive enforcement of

existing laws against illicit trade in Kenya

where substandard building material find their

way into our market.

3. Promoting the consumption of Kenyan

building materials/local content in all

government projects.

4. Reducing the cost of electricity for

manufacturers.

5. Brief us on the MRM’s ‘ANTI

ASBESTOS’ Campaign.

MRM is at the forefront of working with other partners

to replace Asbestos roofs as per NEMA regulations.

This is a re-roofing campaign to help those who have

not met the deadlines to do so in a professional and

safe way.

6. MRM have been members

of KPDA since 2015, how has

this been beneficial to your

Who is Wendi of UHDA?

It is either that or Wendi of Upper Hill. I realized that

is how most people have saved me on their phones

so I guess it makes easy introduction. But my name is

Wendi Kawira and I am the Administration Manager of

the Upper Hill District Association or in short UHDA.

How long have you worked in

UHDA?

It is now coming to almost 5 years although it feels

just like the other day. Every year has brought

tremendous growth, not just personally but also for

UHDA.

Do you have trouble separating

yourself with UHDA?

Not really. On weekdays I am UHDA, I represent

it even after work hours so you will not find me

in a place or situation that will compromise the

image of UHDA. But on the weekends, it is

just Wendi. I try as much as I can to separate

my work and personal life.

Give us a rundown of your

day on a normal day?

Every day is unique. For example, just

recently, I had a meeting with the Kenya

Power and Lighting Company Ltd and it

sort of set the tone for the day because I

had to get feedback from our members on

KPLC services. Currently, I am engaging

with the Nairobi City County Government

on removing some kiosks because one

of our members wants to rehabilitate their

frontage. On yet another day, I will be with the

Roads Contractor to mitigate some issues then

later meet some potential members. I must be

on the ground to see what is going on and at

the same time I also have to attend to office

matters so over time I have learned to strike

a balance and perfect multi-tasking.

of public parking in some areas in Upper Hill.

Our constitutional

mandate is to resolve

issues by cooperation

not by confrontation.

This has helped us

to reinforce our

partnerships with

Government agencies

such as KURA, KPLC and

the Nairobi Water and

Sewerage Company Ltd.

Then we held a community clean up together

with NCCG in April where we were sensitizing the

participating public on proper garbage disposal

using gunny bags. Then just recently, we held

a networking forum where we previewed our

marketing video and released the Upper Hill

Directory.

What are UHDA values?

First and foremost is credibility. Our partners,

members and generally Upper Hill stakeholders

rely on our information which is factual. Our

weekly email updates are based on information

received from the source not hearsay.

In fact, in our Upper Hill Directory we have

included emergency numbers at the back where

we literally called all these institutions to ensure

the phone numbers provided were functional.

We wanted to eliminate this issue of emergency

contacts being listed for the sake but are not

functional. We can credibly confirm that these

numbers are working and you will be assisted

promptly.

Secondly, cooperation. Our constitutional

mandate is to resolve issues by cooperation not

by confrontation. This has helped us to reinforce

our partnerships with Government agencies

such as KURA, KPLC and the Nairobi Water and

Sewerage Company Ltd. It is important to realize

that while demonstrating on the streets will give

you the audience it may at times not yield the

results. So, we are extremely prudent in how we

handle matters because at the end of the day, we

still need these institutions.

Our third and also important value is integrity.

Since inception UHDA has been founded on

strong pillars of integrity. There is a notion that if

you want things to move in County you must bribe,

this is not true. Having dealt with County officials

on a daily basis, I have never bribed them to do

their job and they have on most times heeded

to our requests. This goes back to our value on

cooperation, if you deal with matters without

confrontation both you and the officials will not

compromise integrity.

What frustrates you?

Slow progress and baseless complaints. It

frustrates me when things do not move at the

speed I would like. It also frustrates me when

people complain just for the sake of it. My take

on complaints is complain to highlight an actual

concern and if possible offer a practical solution.

Last thoughts?

If you are in Upper Hill whether as a business

owner or as a resident, I would highly recommend

you join UHDA.
