Government has pulled down Migingo market in Githurai 45, Kiambu County after the other along the highway was demolished last year.

Traders were left counting loses after the dreaded green Sany bulldozer, amid tight security flattened the market.

The exercise is intended to clear structures sitting closely on the railway line. Among those that have been demolished is Hope of Life Family Church belonging to Pastor PP Ngure.

Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura claimed that the over 3, 000 traders were kicked out by Kiambu County and Kenha teams to pave way for a Chinese investor to put up business premises but area Governor Ferdinard waititu refuted the claims saying they were in process of putting up a moder market there at a cost of Sh2.7 billion but up-to-date there has been no indication the purported project is coming.
