The hawkers really don’t want to leave the streets of Nairobi, where they have been plying their trade ever since the elections caught up with us. Now that we have a peace deal, therefore the New Year is a few weeks late (when they were expected to be flushed out after the polls), the man who we didn’t give kazi in 2002 has some kazi to do. UK has declared and insists, it is time they moved.
The good people at Haiya! polled to find out how we feel about them:
If this is anything to go by, we are hopelessly divided as to whether we want the hawkers to leave the city centre, or to continue wading through them every time. Me, I have made up my mind, OK I just changed it just as I was about to write my decision here.
There are so many reasons for and against them! Man, my head hurts! Can we have some resolution on this, anyone?
