The county government of Kisumu is planning to relocate all the hawkers using the main streets of the lakeside city for their businesses.

This is to pave way for the ongoing street renovations.

County boss Prof. Anyang’ Nyong’o confirmed that they are setting alternative areas for the hundreds of hawkers who’ll be unwanted in the streets.

He cited that the hawkers are encroaching into pavements and walkways meant for pedestrians therefore congesting the city.
