The cause of the fire is not yet known however the investigations have began immediately. Speaking while confirming the incidence, Mombasa county governor Ali Hassan Joho,said that the fire brigades arrived on time to extinguish the fire but unfortunately, nothing was saved.
He has however, assured the traders that he will offer the support needed to reconstruct the market again, so that the people can return back to normal business.
Amongst the sections affected are the vegetables side,Cereals and clothes but more details will be given after investigation are over.No injuries have been reported so far.
I take this opportunity to thank the brigades and urge all traders that,upon closing their business, they should ensure that all lights are off and that electricity points are well connected.May the Lord grant the affected traders strength to rise up again.
