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.
