Traders in Homa Bay Sub County have challenged the County Government to seek their views before starting to demolish business stalls in the town.
Led by the Secretary Homa Bay Town Traders Association, Simeon Kwach, the traders said that it has become a trend for traders to be given notices without any proper consultations before their business premises were demolished.
Speaking to KNA in Homa Bay town, Kwach noted that the tendency of telling traders to quit their trading areas through written notices and without consultation was unfair and the traders were opposed to the move.
Kwach, who was accompanied by the Chairman of the Organization, Geoffrey Onduso, further argued that in many instances, the notices were very short hence injurious to their business operations.
The chairman said that a number of business premises were recently demolished at Sofia market to allow for construction of the County Stadium without proper consultation between the traders and county government.
