"It was unexpected since everybody gathered together and praised what I did." They scheduled the event for yesterday (Monday) and presented me with a certificate and a trophy.


"It said 'Landlord of the Century Award 2020 to 2022,'" says the owner. There was also some joy. He added, "The most important thing is acceptance."

Munene made headlines in April 2020 when he announced that he would waive all rent for his 29 tenants for a month.

"I completed three tasks. For four months, I waived the rent. Following that, they paid 25% of the rent for seven months. I used to feed them regularly.

"There were also some Form Four and Class Eight tutors and pupils." Instead of wasting time, I organized a class, and we discovered the Covid-19 technique," he explained.

The occupants, most of whom had lived in the apartments for more than ten years, were an important component of the landlord-tenant collaboration.

"I obtained the money from my savings account because I was donating." They had been paying rent for over ten years, with some of them staying longer.

"We had a landlord-tenant relationship, and they had been supporting me throughout, so I had no problems returning," he explained.
