SAKAJA’S FINANCE BILL DEMANDS CITY HAWKERS TO PAY MORE THAN DOUBLE DAILY FEES.
By Doris Kamene.
The proposed Nairobi City County Finance Bill which is before the Nairobi County Assembly states that hawkers will now have to pay 50Ksh from the usual 20 Ksh so as to hawk within the county.
This comes with the Governor’s intention to increase revenue collection for the city.
However, Sakaja plans to make this seemingly hard task possible by relocating hawkers from uptown,not only to reduce congestion from the pavements and streets but also give them a specific place to operate from.
