Hundreds of traders rendered jobless in Desai demolitions
Small traders along Nairobi’s Desai Road today woke up to a rude shock after bulldozers descended on their stalls and demolished them.
The demolition exercise which started in the morning has seen hundreds of traders lose their equipment and merchandise.
Some traders who operate furniture workshops have also seen their items demolished and some looted by thugs.
They claim that they had been given notice some three days ago but had dismissed the notice as mere threats.
