Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has stirred fresh controversy by his simple calculations on the number of houses the government is expected to build under the Big 4 Agenda.
In a post on his official Facebook page on Friday night, Kuria zeroed down to the exact number of houses President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration is required to build per hour.
The outspoken MP argued that the Jubilee government has 42 months left to the end of their term in 2022 and thus to build 500,000 houses within this period, then the government needs to build 11,905 houses per month from February 1 going forward.
He further noted that the government will be required to build 397 houses per day, which translates to 16 houses every hour.
"That means 397 houses per day (including Weekends). This weekend alone we should build 1,000 houses. Every hour we should build 16 houses. Tomorrow (Saturday) I leave Nairobi at noon for my friend David (Not Dennis) Itumbi’s Ngurario in Embu. Kenya will have seen 192 new houses by that time, " he noted
This sparked a debate online with some of his followers arguing that it was impossible to achieve the target within the short period.
Here are some of the reactions by Kenyans.
This comes a month after the MP criticised President Uhuru for neglecting the Mt Kenya region in terms of development.
