Fire guts down Marikiti market in Nairobi CBD following land ownership dispute


Marikiti traders were on Friday morning left counting losses after a fire destroyed part of the market following an alleged land ownership dispute with Kenya Railways.

Stores used by the traders to house their trading material such as sacks were completely destroyed in the inferno.

The incident came a day after Kenya Railways evicted some traders who operated at a site owned by the parastatal which is currently on an ownership dispute with the traders.
