A landlord left his tenants shocked and excited after he asked them not to pay rent for two months as a result of the challenges brought by coronavirus.
Michael Munene, the landlord, said he understood the situation brought upon the people by the pandemic which is also affecting the country’s economy.
Munene left the tenants smiling after telling them he was well aware of what is going on and that as a human being, this was one way to touch those around him.
Munene, while speaking with a TV station in Kenya, explained that he was touched by the plight of his tenants who may experience challenges in raising their rents.
“I have stayed with these people for quite some time and I have always had an agreement with them to pay their rent before the tenth of every month but most of them have challenges.“
“When this pandemic (coronavirus) came to Kenya, life became unbearable and some of them could not afford to raise the rent early enough resorting to borrowing, that’s why I have decided to not to charge them for the next two months,” he added.
Soon after he made the announcement some of his tenants rejoiced and thanked him for the good gesture.
