City Market to go on a two day lockdown for Fumigation
Nairobi City Market will remain shut for two days to allow for fumigation exercise and cleaning of the facility.
The fumigation exercise targets the entire market which holds both the clothes and food sections.
According to Nairobi County Executive for Health Hitan Majevdia, there are enough officials deployed within Nairobi CBD to ensure that it is fully fumigated and safe for residents.
“Our plan is to fumigate all vulnerable areas including slums and we shall not leave anything untouched..” he said
Meanwhile, City Market Youth group chairman Allan Ochieng applauded the move but asked the county government to ensure there is running water in the market throughout.
“We want to ask our fellow traders to cooperate and keep off the market as directed. Good health is everything.” Allan said.
City market is well known for fresh Mbuta (Nile Perch) Ngege (Tilapia) as well as fresh meat.
