After Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja issued a tough ultimatum to city hawkers, essentially pushing them out of town and outlawing their roadside operations, Kenyans treated the decision differently, with many, surprisingly, supporting the move and others reading a little mischief in it.

Speaking during a meeting on Wednesday, the county boss issued orders that no hawkers will be allowed to operate along lanes connecting to Moi Avenue in the Nairobi Central Business District.

He further proposed that the affected hawkers be given priority to operate along the back lanes and eke out a living.

“From Tom Mboya coming up to Moi Avenue, we will have no hawking and street business there because we have a plan on that road where we receive billions from investors,” he said.
