  • The kiosks belonging to more than 300 traders were demolished Monday evening by KENHA.
  • The traders are accused of encroaching the road reserve where they constructed their Kiosks for business activities.

Traders operating along Kendu Bay old Town in Karachuonyo Constituency, Homa Bay County are counting losses after the Kenya National Highways Authority (KENHA) demolished at least 300 kiosks to give way for the expansion of the road.

The kiosks belonging to more than 300 traders were demolished Monday evening by KENHA as the traders are accused of encroaching the road reserve where they constructed their Kiosks for business activities.

The traders expressed concern that their business structures were demolished without notice from the authority.

They want the county government of Homa Bay to intervene so that they can find an alternative site where they can carry out their business activities after the demolition.
