Business in Migori slowly picking up after cessation of Demos

Business in Migori town is slowly returning to normal after the cessation of demonstrations by Azimo La Umoja leader Raila Odiga.

Major towns in Migori County like Awendo, Rongo and Migori have been affected by the weekly demonstrations affecting businesses along the Kisii-Isebania highway.

Business residents in Migori town said that their business has been affected by the weekly demonstrations but they were hopeful that things will normalise after Raila called off the weekly demons.

Bunge la Mwananchi Member and businessman Mr. Robert Juma said that they have welcomed the initiative by President Ruto to address the issues that were raised by Azimo la Umoja One Kenya Alliance leader Raila Odinga.

Juma was hopeful that the talks will bear fruits so that demonstrations in the country can be called off. He, however, said that they will head back to demonstrations under the directions of Raila if the talks fail.

Magdalene Amondi a fish trader acknowledged that her fish business was greatly affected because of the demonstrations. “We could not get fish from Muhuru bay and Sori beach because the residents had blocked the Nyatike Migori road at Namba Junction,” stated Amondi.

Migori County has been struggling businesswise due to the Monday’s and Thursday’s demonstrations that led to the blockage of Migori bridge that connects Kisii-Isebania road affecting areas of Isebania border and some parts of Trans Mara in Narok County.
