Nick Langfield, Rendeavour Country Head says  the delays in approving  building plans is  jeopardizing the 50 billion shillings investment that is also key in the implementation of cheap affordable housing, which is one of the government’s big four agenda.

Investors at Kijani Ridge, which is one of the housing projects at Tatu City say, their 2015 plans are yet to be approved and some buyers have started making losses as they had borrowed loans from banks to invest in the housing project.
