We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

The COVID-19 crisis has presented unusual challenges to small businesses that compel us to find a working model through financing, DP William Ruto has said.

Ruto on Monday said friendly regulation and capacity building are needed to cushion the sector from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The DP made the remarks after meeting national and regional executive members of the Market Traders and Boda Boda Association of Kenya at Harambee House Annex, Nairobi County.

“The government will continue creating an enabling environment for the micro economy like the bodaboda, mitumba, and food industry to flourish,” said Ruto.

The Kajiado team was led by Samuel Mugo, who has had frequent confrontation with the county government on issues related to trade in the region’s markets.

Mugo successfully sued the Kajiado county government about one year ago when it attempted to relocate small traders from its old market to a new place near the town’s bus terminus.

He has been critical at the way governor Joseph Lenku has been treating Kajiado traders by not including his members in decision making.

“As traders and taxpayers in this county, we deserve respect from the executive led by governor Lenku,” said Mugo soon after meeting with DP Ruto.
