According to tenants who reached out to Kahawa Tungu, the landlord disconnected water and electricity for the tenants, who had delayed to pay rent.

“Most of us who live here work from industrial area and many companies closed their operations since the curfew was effected and we are yet to be paid but the promise was we’ll be paid by this week. Today in the morning he disconnected power, water and he’s threatened to evict people by date 10 if they won’t have paid,” said one of the tenants.
