There was chaos at Beecenter in Umoja yesterday after two groups of youths started fighting over space to rebuild stalls initially demolished by Nairobi County.

One of the fighting youth factions was allegedly brought by Embakasi West MP George Theuri who was claiming that the space belongs to him.

The other faction claimed that they are the owners of the place and that they had put up their businesses before demolitions.

Kevin Ochieng one of the Vibanda owners accused the MP of paying the youths to destroy their business premises in order for him to grab the place.

“MP Theuri showed up here with goons whom he had paid 200 shillings and started chaos claiming that the area belongs to him. The goons demanded that we vacate the place forcing us to retaliate,” said Ochieng.

He claims that this is not the first time the MP has attempted to grab the place.

Police had to come in and restore calm in the place.
