Insecurity, Dirt Killing Business in Siaya
The traders say that the high levels of insecurity in the area have affected business in the area and challenged the police to be more vigilant and increase patrols to address the problem.
Led by Siaya bus park traders’ organization chairman Fredrick Omondi Jera, the traders decried the rampant burglary, mentioning that shops were being broken into at an alarming rate especially during the rainy season.
He stated that this has gravely affected their operations forcing them to employ private guards.
Speaking during a meeting with Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) Siaya County branch, Omondi called on the county government to also improve sanitation and hygiene standards in the region.
They also want the county government to unblock the drainage system.
KNCCI chairperson Roseline Omuga said that insecurity will affect business in the country.
She encouraged the traders to join KNCCI so as to have a strong platform where they can present their problems.
