Speaking to journalist LATAK secretary general Ben Liyai says they have talked to their members over the issue and going forward they expect no tenants to be harassed by the landlords because of rent payment.

‘‘LATAK directs all tenants not to pay rent until when H.E Uhuru Kenyatta orders businesses to resume normal operations.All the landlords must forthwith stop evictions, harassment and disconnection of electricity and water to tenants.’’Liyai said.
The association has also asked landlords having challenges in complying with the directives to send the word TENANT or LANDLORD to toll free emergency number 20777 so that the association can pick up the matter.
