SIBU: A total of 86 units of affordable homes or Rumah Spekra Permata (RSP) in Kemuyang here will be ready by April.

Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian said this was part of the 2,500 RSP units announced by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg last year.

“Currently, 86 units of the RSP are being built by the Housing Development Corporation and another 24 units are in progress.

“The 86 units will be completed by April this year. Prices range between RM90,000 and RM160,000, ” he said after a site visit to Kemuyang.
