Avoid using footbridges, Sakaja informs hawkers and street families

Governor Johnson Sakaja of Nairobi has warned the city's hawkers and homeless people to stay off footbridges.

Following a spate of muggings and general unrest in the city, Sakaja stated that it is a security issue for the citizens of Nairobi.

He promised to find a location away from footbridges where hawkers may operate.

But not in a public utility like that, he added. "If you want a space for trade, we will find you one."

On Sunday, the governor gave a sermon at the AIPCA church in Dandora.

He claimed that the county has already evicted a number of street families from footbridges.

No one will be permitted since the fire department has arrived with pipes.

Recently, Governor Sakaja announced that he will discuss the situation with the recently appointed Police Inspector General, Japhet Koome.

Koome also sternly warned the city's criminals that he would soon be coming after them.

In the Dandora region, Sakaja also forbade criminals from terrorizing residents.

I'll provide you job possibilities, but please don't commit robberies and other crimes. A friend of mine was stabbed to death two weeks ago.

He told the locals, "I will be meeting IG Koome tomorrow to find a path forward.
