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.
