The proposed Housing Development Fund will just be another playing ground for thugs like NSSF, NHIF and Railway Development Fund.
It doesn’t make any sense to create a fund for every conceivable problem. It is not clear why a statutory deduction is necessary in the housing case.
Housing is not a probable occurrence like sickness or a later day financial event like retirement. This is a daily basic need that cannot be resolved by penalising people directly without any direct benefits.
Most likely, the whole thing will be contested and reversed in courts.
