Tenants thrown out after costly mistake while paying rent

Wrong move by tenants lands them out in the cold

Nairobi railway club tenants evicted from their houses

Tenants at the Nairobi Railway Club were on Wednesday thrown out of their houses after paying rent to individuals with the Kenya Railways instead of the Kenya Railways Pensioners.

Johnson Miano, who is the chairman of the Kenya Railways retirees, stated that the association had lost a lot of money due to the illegal rent deals made.

“The property is owned by Kenya Railways pensioners who have leased it out to several tenants, however, the occupants have been paying rent to certain individuals at Kenya Railways instead of the association,” remarked Miano.

The chairman further pointed out that wrong channel used by the tenants resulted to a loss of Sh2 million on a monthly basis.

The association had decided to sue the management of the club after the debt accrued over time.

Police officers were deployed at the entrance to the club to ensure the eviction process was completed.

The 18-acre piece of land that the houses were built on, had been handed to a group of over 9,000 pensioners by the organisation after it was unable to pay them their allowances.

In November 2018, Nairobi County Government had claimed approximately Sh8.5 million in unpaid land rates by the retirees.

The compilation of the rates had been dated back to the time before the country had gained independence when the firm was known as the East African Railways Corporation.

The retirees however had claimed that it was a scheme by the county government to take away their property.
