County houses tenants given up to end of July to clear rent arrears or face eviction.

All tenants residing in county government houses have up to end of this month (July 2018) to clear all outstanding rent arrears failure to which their tenancy will be revoked and houses repossessed without any further reference.

In a demand notice dated 13th July 2018, Kiambu County Government has given these tenants a 14-days’ notice to settle all the accrued arrears, otherwise the devolved government will have no option but to repossess these houses and re-allocate (Read: evict) them.

Consequently, the county government has warned the current tenants against transferring or subletting county houses saying that doing so without following due process will be null and void.

“It is illegal to irregularly transfer, trade in or sublet any county rented houses. Any transfer without following the due process including payment of the requisite fees is un-procedural, null and void, such transfers will be revoked,” read part of the notice signed by the Thika Sub-County Finance Officer Samuel Muthondu.

Ofafa, Starehe, Jamhuri, Ziwani, Kimathi and Majengo Teachers Quarters are some of the county houses in Thika.

Others are UTI, Magoko, Haile Selassie, Depot Staff Houses and Chania Water Treatment Work Houses.
