Notably, the traders revealed that a section of the contested land has been taken without any knowledge and some containers will be brought along the railway line adding that the rich grabbers are eying for the market’s strategic location.

On the other hand, Kiambu County has been building modern markets in other outlined areas, their derelict market has not only been flooding but is also on the verge of being seized by a cluster of tycoons.

Githurai traders have called upon Governor Kimani Wamatangi for the issue settlement for once and to let them work toward a sense of peace in the dispute and prevent the market from being grabbed.
