A landlord raised controversy on social media after he shocked one of his tenants with a surprise visit. It has been reported that the tenant, a lady, has been living in the man’s apartment for two years but has been unable to pay the rent.
According to a video posted on Facebook by BI Phakathi, the landlord stated that the lady had failed to renew her rent, most likely owing to financial difficulties and that she would be evicted from the property.
The anonymous house owner arrived at the lady’s residence and assisted her in packing her belongings.
He then proceeded to place her in a hotel room for three weeks, until the time came when she was able to stand on her own two feet again. In the video, he can be heard encouraging her and saying nice things to her. After being surprised, the woman was overcome with emotion and sobbed as she held the man. It is believed that the man’s gesture of evicting her from the residence was intended to make the place available for rent to others.
