Kisumu’s Lwang’ni beach eateries demolished to pave way for the expansion of the port. The place is known as one of the most favourite fish eating points for the locals and also tourists.
Several owners of the popular spot today morning found their shops demolished following an eviction notice from Kenya Railways. A month ago, the traders were issued with the eviction notice that read, “You are therefore given one month notice to vacate your business out of Kenya Railways land to pave way for revitalization, expansion and operation of the Kisumu Port,” the notice was from Kenya Railways acting managing director Philip Mainga.
Shops that were on Akamba Line and Lwang’ni Beach adjacent to the shores of Lake Victoria were the most affected.
There have been several complaints regarding the fish price in Kisumu with Lwang’ni as one of the top spots for inflated prices of fish. As most traders blame the water hyacinth in the lake that curb breeding and production of fish.
