Kenyans unable to pay June Rent: Research carried out by Ridhia Kenya indicates that 56% of Kenyans have not paid house rent for the month of June. According to their statistics, this number has risen from 35% of those that could not afford to pay their May rent.
Ridhia also noted that out of the 56% only 10% from this number is sure of clearing their June rent. The remaining percentage is not certain.
Others await eviction notices from Landlords and agents after failing to pay for May and not seeing possibilities of clearing arrears and paying up for the month of June.
This research comes hours after the president announced the continuation of Night Curfews and inter-county travel ban.
Kenyans have since taken to social media to attack the president for taking such measures as the country goes into economic death bed.
The president has however noted that opening the country would increase the rate infections in the country. He went ahead to to ask landlords and employers to be considerate with their tenants and employees.
