Senator Outa and Midiwo face eviction over accrued rent arrears

Four prominent personalities residing in Kisumu government houses will face eviction following accrued rent arrears.

They include National Water Harvesting and Storage Authority chairman Erick Okeyo, Kisumu senator Fred Outa, and former Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo.

According to the acting house manager Abala Wanga, the individuals face forcible eviction for failing to remit their rent at Kisumu’s posh Milimani estate.

According to the county, Outa and Midiwo owe the county Ksh 1.7 million and 876,000 respectively.

Midiwo, however, cleared the air stating he didn’t have any issues with Kisumu county regarding the houses.

Instead, he said, he stopped paying rent because the house is in a dilapidated condition.

“Last week, engineers from the county came to assess the house. The roof is leaking after part of it was carried away with the wind,” said Midiwo.

On the other hand, Patric Ouya, businessman cum politician owes the county Ksh 1.5 million according to a letter dated October 7, 2020.

Outa on his part said he was given the house when in a deplorable state. Outa said he renovated the house using his own funds therefore he didn’t owe the county any money.

The city manager insisted that time had elapsed and tenants must vacate the houses latest Friday.

Wanga added that the county would repossess the house since most of them needed renovation. He also sent a letter to other tenants stating they should vacate the houses by November 30. since some of them had sublet the premises.

According to the city manager, failing to pay rent contravenes section 2a of the tenancy agreement.
