Nairobi traders held demonstrations today morning to protest the demolition of their stalls by the County askaris.
The traders lit bonfires and barricaded roads in protest of the demolitions along Argwings Kodhek Road near Yaya Center.
County askaris accompanied by AP officers raided the stalls at about 6 am saying that they were not authorized.
The traders claimed they were not notified of the destruction hence the protests.
Nairobi County senior inspectorate officer Peter Mbaya however stated that the structures were not authorised.
The stalls are reportedly erected on pedestrian walkways and roads.
