A Kenyan landlord simply known as Samuel Kioko has locked the gate of his tenants apartment with a live snake for failing to pay up their rents.
According to reports, Samuel was said to have discreetly placed the snake on his tenants apartment door after they went to work in the morning.
The landlord who is from the Kunda Kindu area in Kitui town of Kenya surprised locals of the town after putting up a live snake to collect his rent arrears.
The snake which is said to be diabolical was seen unmoving and failed to crawl away from the gate despite not being bound.
The tenants failure to pay up their accumulated rent arrears comprising September and October made the impatient landlord carry out such drastic action on them.
