Ngara  Mechanics  stranded After  being evicted From Quarray Road


Mechanics working along Quarray road   Ngara now want the government to allocate them a new working area seven days after they were forcefully evicted from the area.

The mechanics  say they blame the government for not being considerate arguing that not having a place to work has adverse effects in their lives, more so as the country continues to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

Peter Kamau one of the affected mechanics, says he had been camping in Ngara hoping that the government will heed  to  their calls but all in vein.

‘‘We  have been  here for seven days now, we told them that they should relocate us but that has not happened.We have families.Survival without a job is a difficult task. All our customers  disappeared immediately we were chased’’  he told Ghetto Radio News.

But the government insists that  it will not  allow any mechanic to turn a public road into a garage and the move to push them out of the road was in deed in order.

Quarray road links Ngara and Gikomba Market and was part of the projects launched by  the two level of the government in 2017.
