Kenyan tenants pay highest rent, report

18 April 2013, 13:10

Nairobi - The Standard reports a new report has shown that tenants in Kenya pay a higher proportion of their income in rent than their counterparts in any other part of the world.

The report further reveals that 80 per cent of Kenyans living in urban areas do not stay in their houses.
