The landlord, Ngángá Gitau, is said to have stabbed to death 26-year-old Warren Jirongo after he failed to pay his rent for the month of January.

The angry residents later took to the streets with weapons asking the landlord who has since gone into hiding, to come out.

According to his neighbors, Jirongo who is an orphan, struggled to make ends meet as he worked as a garbage collector in the area.
