So many infernos have been witnessed in Gikomba market in Nairobi. Efforts to try and establish the causes of frequent fire outbreaks have not bore any fruits. Today, governor Sakaja visited the market and donated Ksh 2.4 million to the affected traders. He also gave Ksh 200,000 to the family of one of them who lost his life. However Uasin Gishu senator honourable Jackson Mandagor had a different opinion on the same.
He took to Twitter to suggest the best way to stop the fires. He suggested that the county government and national government to come together and bring a parmanent solution to the problem.
"Who is responsible for the frequent fire outbreaks in Gikombaa? It's time County Government amd National Government invest in a modern permanent market structures," he wrote on Twitter.
It should be noted that they have severally alleged that these fires are intentional. That the person wants the traders to leave the place.
