“The spectacle of able bodied men mishandling women selling wares on the street is barbaric and symbolises a city that has lost its soul and mind. How can the county government explain the scene where a woman is seen hiding under a bus from a gang of askaris?”
The Deputy Governor mentioned that Evans Kidero has messed up numerous hustlers and businessmen plus businesswomen. “It is a shame that Muthurwa is full of garbage and clogged sewers. Yet the traders there pay rates to the county government daily,” said the 2017 gubernatorial hopeful. “Nairobians, including small scale traders deserve better management of market places,” he added.
“Offenders have been exploiting the askari’s nonappearance at night to direct illicit business,” said Nairobi Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke. The province government has been blamed for giving hawkers exchanging licenses then conflicting with their own archives in a case that has been indicted.
