In today’s show, Yilungelo Lakho investigates tenants and landlords who have fallen victim to building hijakings by criminal syndicates or dubious managing agents. The problem occurs when legitimate property owners lose control of their properties through suspicious activity by criminals or the owners just abandon their properties leaving the renting tenants in a difficult situation. Often the situation leads to rent payments being pocketed instead of paying for municipal services such as water and electricity, and this situation results in dilapidated and unkempt buildings.
