Fire razes the Gikomba market, again

Share Article

Gikomba Market was once again on fire yesterday Saturday night.

This is the second time this month and the fifth this year that the largest open air market is on fire.

“It is very sad that we have been losing our items to fire, and no one is being held responsible. We can’t plan for tomorrow,” James Maina, a hawker in Gikomba said.

A visit by Iganjo media found devasted traders who were counting losses in millions of shillings.

This happened at the time Nairobi was experiencing heavy rainfall.

The traders and authorities said that the cause of the fire is still unknown.

Gikomba has experienced mysterious fires for years but no one has been arrested.
