-The traders say that the protests might turn chaotic

-A few however say that they will open their businesses as usual

A section of Nairobi traders are planning to close their businesses on Monday ahead of the Azimio protests.

The traders say that this is a precautionary measure to avoid losses in case the protests turn chaotic.

“The Azimio protests have turned chaotic before so the Monday protests will not be an exception. We don’t think that they will be peaceful,” said a trader.

“We would have loved to open and operate as usual but we do not have any option but to close on Monday,” said another trader.

Other traders to reopen

Some other traders however stated that they will open their businesses and continue with work as usual.

The cost living is quite high and we cannot afford to close even for a single day. We pray that the protests don’t turn chaotic because this government has also refused to listen to us,” said a hawker.

Azimio Leader Raila Odinga has insisted that the Monday protests will go on as planned.

The leader is planning to rally his supporters to Harambee House in his push to have the cost of living lowered.

Mini protests have in the meantime been happening across the country, in Kisumu, Migori and Vihiga areas.

Meanwhile Deputy Gachagua has urged the traders to open their businesses assuring them of their security.
