Chief warns traders against erecting illegal structures on road reserves 

Ndagani Karingani area Chief Charles Njagi has cautioned vendors to remove unauthorized structures from road reserves terming them as a threat to safety and security.

Speaking in his office in Ndagani, the Chief encouraged traders in the market to remove stalls built along the roads, adding that the structures will be forcibly removed if they fail to vacate.

“We have warned traders against building structures along the road several times, and if they refuse to vacate, we will have to remove they by force leading to unnecessary losses,” he said.

He noted that the stalls are treacherous and can lead to accidents from road blockage and careless collision from motorists.

Njagi also pointed out that those kiosks have become a hiding place for criminals whose aim is to kidnap people at night.

The administrator warned them to remove their properties in advance before they officially start the demolition process for safety purposes.

“We will not spare anything during the demolitions, so l am advising traders to remove their items in advance,” he said.

Njagi urged traders to acquire licenses before opening a kiosk, adding that no one will be allowed to run a business illegally.
