Today morning Kenyans in Nairobi woke up to another sad series of Gikomba market inferno. It is always unclear on what or who causes the fire in Gikomba. since January the market has been in flames more than three times.
Residents in Gikomba cite that it might be competition between businessmen, while others say the people in business burn their goods willingly to be reimbursed by their insurance companies. This is allegedly done on an agreement mostly when products stalls.
The Nairobi governor on his previous address on the same incident noted that, the proper solution for this menace is to build permanent shopping stalls for people doing business in Gikomba since the land is owned by the county government.
There is no clarity on what causes the fires in Gikomba market hence we should not rule out the attempt of land grabbing in this debacle.
