0 718

A section of Mtindwa traders whose stalls were demolished last week by the county government are back at the market in desperate attempts to sell their products.

The traders claim they have nowhere to go to hence their decision to go back.

“Where do they want us to go? This is the place that helps us put food on the table, pay for our children’s school fees and our house rents,” they lamented.

They are however using temporary stands to display their products in order to avoid incurring losses.

They are calling on the relevant authorities to ate least give them an alternative place to conduct their businesses which was their source of livelihood.

They faulted their political leaders for staying silent while they suffered and yet they voted for them.

“Where is our MP, our area MCA, this is the time we need them,unfortunately they are all silent,” said another trader.

Some traders have however moved and have given their clients notices of their new places of operation.

The government last week demolished the Mtindwa market in its effort to get rid of illegal structures set up by traders and unscrupulous dealers.
