Gachagua Compensates Gikomba Victims with One million after Inferno that Impacted their Businesses

His excellency Rigathi gachagua, deputy president, has donated one million Kenya shillings to traders who lost their stocks in yet another fire blaze.

Around 4 a.m. on Wednesday, a portion of the market caught fire, leaving traders counting their losses.

George theuri, the deputy president's political and youth affairs advisor, donated to the traders.

Gerald irungu, a Ziwani member of the county assembly, and Charles njagua, a former Starehe Mp, were with Theuri, a former Embakasi west member of parliament.

Samuel njuguna, 23, was injured when the Nairobi county fire and disaster team arrived on time and put out the fire.

For treatment, njuguna was rushed to Kenyatta national hospital.

On Wednesday morning, a portion of the Gikomba market caught fire. Every year, the Gikomba market, the largest open-air market in East Africa, has experienced unpredictable fires.

To assist in the prevention of future fires, Nairobi governor Johnson sakaja committed in October to construct a fire station at Gikomba market.

Additionally, he stated that he would survey the land and issue title deeds, claiming that speculators and land grabbers are among the causes of the fires.

"We will construct a wall around Gikomba because it is public land. The people of Nairobi own it. "We will defend it against grabbers until the end," he declared.
