Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyong’o stated that hawkers will be barred from the streets of Kisumu city as part of the ongoing renovations of the city. He explained that the county is creating alternative places for the hawkers to sell their products.

According to the County Governor, most of the hawkers are selling on the streets because they do not have better places to trade.

He also added that there are ongoing works on the expansion and refurbishments of Jubilee, Kibuye and Otonglo markets where the hawkers will be given spaces to sell their products.
