Mutindwa Market has been demolished.
The market which stands at the intersection between Outering road and Sonko road has been the source of fresh vegetables, clothes, electronics and other goods and services for the residents of Buruburu and Umoja estate.
Traders woke up to flattened stalls, crushed good and dreams.
Speaking at the scene this morning, the Chairman of the traders, Mr Titus assured the traders that all wil be well and that they have been given the are on Sonko Road to build temporary metallic stalls.
“Sasa tumepewa hapa, na ninataka mipangilio mema na stalls safi za Chuma ndio tusiambiwe tena tuhame juu ya uchafu. Hii Barabara imefungwa permanently,” he told the traders.
Mutindwa has been demolished before but has often rose from the ashes.
If Sonko Road is closed permanently, it them means, Mutindwa market is back to what it used to be before, only without the mud. But who know, vegetable markets often grow from nice tarmacked pavements into mud pools.
Why the latest demolition?
The Kenya Railways Corporation is looking to build a Railway station at the site, in line with the Nairobi Metropolitan Services Improvement Project (NaMSIP) financed by the World Bank Group.
