Hawkers and boda boda operators today engaged the police and county askaris in running battles following their attempts to evict them from the CBD.
The operation saw some 20 boda boda operators arrested during the man-hunt with some running away leaving their motorcyles behind.
Yesterday the Nairobi County commissioner Kangethe Thuku directed all the boda bodas and hawkers to immediately vacate the CBD.
Bodaboda operators who talk to Ghetto Radio News condemned the directive but maintained that they will move out-side CBD .
According to the new directive by the commissioner all boda boda operators should not go past Nyayo stadium,City Stadium,Pangani ,Ngara and Yaya Centre.
Meanwhile Cityhall operation director Peter Mbaya maintains that they will continue arresting those defying orders untill they vacate CBD.
