Merciless Landlady Completely Welds Her Tenant's Door With Kids Inside Over Unpaid Rent

Law enforcers in Bungoma are chasing after a landlady who locked her tenant's children inside their rental unit by completely welding the doors over uncleared rental arrears.

The late Kabuchai parliamentary seat aspirant's wife identified as Catherine Malaba reportedly welded both front and rear doors while the two minors were inside.

According to police sources, the kids aged 3 and 10 were alone when the incident happened. Bungoma South police boss Moses Munywoki confirmed that indeed the inhumane act had occurred.

The affected tenant Ms. Violet could not hide her pain over how her landlady could not spare her despite her business that has been really affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Law enforcers had to break into the house to free the minors who had been trapped for over five hours. Manhunt has since been initiated to bring the landlady to book.

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has reportedly continued impacting negatively on the public, causing untold suffering and income loss occasioned by mass job losses.

Meanwhile, President Kenyatta recently announced a partial lockdown to five counties believed to be leading in the surging Covid-19 infections.

Effective March 28 (today) evening, movement in and out of Machakos, Kiambu, Nakuru, Kajiado, and Nakuru will remain suspended until further notice.

Announcing the directive, Kenyatta noted that it was in line with the spirited battle in combating the pandemic that has continued claiming lives and affecting thousands.
