Urithi Housing Cooperative Society Chairman Samuel Maina handing over the keys to the new owners of one of the houses during the handing over ceremony of Springs View gated community estate in Gatuanyaga Location of Thika East in Kiambu County.
Urithi Housing Cooperative Society Limited has realised its cherished dream of proving houses to its members when it handed over 100 housing units to them at its Ksh. 250 million Spring View Project in Gatuanyaga Location of Thika East in Kiambu County. 

While presiding over the handing over ceremony, Urithi Chairman Samuel Maina said they were really excited to have completed the project within a period of two years despite many obstacles/challenges. 

He said the project was in line with their Nyumba Mia Concept in where Urithi is constructing a 100 housing units in its housing projects at any one time. He said apart from the just completed Springs View Gated Estate, the society will in the next three months unveil other completed housing projects in Mombasa, Nakuru, Rongai and Juja. 

“We are also going to roll out other housing projects in the 47 counties in the near future," said Maina. He Urithi and members had joined hands through their ‘Tujenge Pamoja’ concept. Through this concept we pooled resources together and constructed these houses. Despite of the many challenges, we gave our members the product we promised without an extra penny,” said Maina. 

The chairman said members paid Ksh. 2.8 million for the 2 bedroomed houses whose current market value stands at Ksh. 7 million. He added that in the next 6 months, Urithi will release 15 housing projects in various parts of the country.

Maina said that the society allowed members to pay for these houses in affordable installments with majority of them securing loans from their sister unit the Urithi Premier Sacco and will repay the same at a very client-friendly programme.

One of the new home owner, Grace Njeru, thanked God and Urithi Society for enabling her to own her own house. She encouraged fellow Kenyans to joining Saccos and land buying companies to enable them realise their dreams of acquiring their own homes. However, she cautioned them against investing blindly before vetting these institutions so as to minimise the risks of losing their investments to fraudsters.

Thika Sub-County Deputy Commissioner in charge of Cooperatives Catherine Mbuki commended Urithi Society for delivering what it had pledged its members. 

She urged societies and land buying companies to ensure that they diligently delivered quality services and products to all their clients.

“When I see Urithi (Sacco) handing over these beautiful houses to their owners I feel proud. This is what other societies and companies ought to do,” said the Commissioner who was the guest of honour during the handing over ceremony.

She said many Societies within her area of jurisdiction were doing a commendable job by enabling members to acquired loans and own property.
