Nakuru business community condemn Azimio-led protests

Members of the Business community in Nakuru have condemned the pro-Azimio protests that rocked some parts of Nakuru City on Wednesday.

Addressing journalists in Nakuru, the members argued that the protests mean no good to their businesses.

Led by their Chairman Stephen Muli, they pointed out that their businesses are counting loss as businesses remained closed.

Muli noted that a section of businesses that had been opened experienced looting with the lives of both customers and traders now at risk.

While noting that the protestors engaged police in running battle in Shabab and Pondamali estates, Muli called on those planning the protests to rethink about their decision and the replica on the economy.

The members of the business community in Nakuru have also issued a stern warning to those engaging in protests and causing havoc in the business environment that such will not be tolerated.

They have vowed to work closely with Nakuru Governor Susan Kihika in ensuring peace and stability in Nakuru for development to be realized.

“We will not tolerate the interference with business through such protests. We shall work to protect our businesses in all ways possible,” said Muli.

Simon OleN asieku from the Nakuru small Business enterprises on his part called on the newly deployed county commissioner to work closely with stakeholders in ensuring peaceful Nakuru.

Nasieku called on those planning to hold weekly protests against the leadership of President William Ruto to use the structured mechanisms in addressing their grievances rather than holding demos.

Sentiments echoed by James Ndung’u who lauded Mbeere MP’s motion on protests that are done within the law.

According to him, those who protest and end up looting and messing up with other people’s property should be dealt with in accordance with the law.
