He said that integrity must be the pillar of the country's housing project for it to be a success.

"And I want to give a warning from here, anybody involved in this programme if you just step off the line, it's not going to be business as usual. So, integrity integrity integrity it is. 

"This programme must be corruption-free. We have agreed on everything, quantity, and costs, unlike in the past when costs changed, there will be no escalations or issues. 

"Integrity is going to be front back centre to ensure this succeeds," President Ruto said.

He added that the project is a result of Kenyans committing their resources to give dignity to fellow Kenyans and must be protected by all means.

Teachers, doctors, and everybody else will have the opportunity to own a home.

"So that we can have a country where everybody believes they own something and are part of."

President Ruto reaffirmed his commitment to ensuring the resources channelled towards the Affordable Housing program are protected.
