Eastleigh residents are now asking the government to provide them with food saying that their income has been halted by the on-going lockdown in the area and they are starving.
Led by Hustler Nation chairman Mburu Kimani the residents say the lockdown has adverse effects on their livelihood and they can not even access their job places outside Eastleigh.
‘‘We want food ,the government should see a way of helping us because we no longer go to work and eating a single meal is currently a problem to mos families.’’ Mburu Told Ghetto Radio News.
He further asked the government to change its tactics saying imposing a lockdown to contain the spread of the Coronavirus can’t be sustainable when there is no food .
‘‘Like Eastleigh most of the families residing here are less privileged when you lock them up and you have nothing to give them then you are doing worst things in their lives than Corona nobody can stay without food.’’ He said.
Meanwhile the group through Eastleigh Resident Association has delivered their petition today morning at Kamkunji assistant commissioners office to demand prompt action towards their grievances.
