Five siblings evicted by Landlord in Umoja finally breath sigh of relief
The five siblings who were evicted by their landlord in Nairobi’s Umoja three area mid this week can finally breath a sigh of relief after Ghetto radio fans and well wishers chimed in to clear the rent arrears.
On Wednesday, Ghetto radio highlighted the plight of the five siblings after they had spent the night in the cold the night before.
They narrated how the landlord did not hid to their pleas to wait for their father who has been stranded upcountry following the cessation of movement in and out of Nairobi.“We live with our dad, my mom passed on last year. As we speak, my dad is stranded in upcountry because of the Nairobi lockdown. The landlord came and ordered us to move out by Saturday but we had nowhere else to go. Today, he came and removed the roof. We tried to talk to him but he refused to listen to us.” Said one of the siblings
The landlord had ordered the two teenagers and their younger siblings to vacate the house by Saturday May 2nd but when they did not move out, he resorted to remove the roof of the house.
After their plight was aired, fans immediately started raising funds for them through ghetto radio and by Friday a substantial amount had been raised to help clear the arrears and shop for the siblings.
On Saturday a group of well wishers together with the Ghetto Radio fans visited the siblings at their home in Umoja and presented them with the donations.
