The Question of Hawkers & Others
The question of hawkers in Nairobi (and other parts of Africa) is a touchy one for most Kenyans. The running battles that they constantly have with City Council askaris bring about emotive discussions about how badly the “downtodden” are treated, where are these people meant to go if thrown of the streets etc.
This blog will be featuring views on the issues of hawkers in detail and the views may be unpopular. As the writer researches and puts his thoughts together, feel free to read other sources of views and news to ferment your responses http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/4888416.stm
