Eastleigh Mall Owners Clash With Hawkers


Mall owners in Eastleigh clashed with hawkers on Saturday evening in renewed infighting between the two sides over working space.

The mall owners have accused the hawkers of being a menace and blocking entrances to their businesses.

An impending eviction of the hawkers by the Nairobi County Government was halted by the high court pending the hearing and determination of a suit filed by the Eastleigh Hawkers’ Association.

the area has called on the county government of Nairobi to work towards reversing the order reinstating the hawkers back on the streets.

The hawkers have however maintained that they derive their livelihoods on the streets and relocating them would be detrimental to their lives.
