Businesses remain shut in Kisii for fear of possible looting

-

Most businesses in Kisii remained shut for the better part of Thursday with traders citing possible looting as reason for keeping off.

Several small-scale traders who mostly vend their wares on the street sides failed to report to work too.

Shops affected by looting on Tuesday were also closed.

A spot check by the Star found some traders were fixing the broken grills on their doors ahead of reopening.

On the streets, anti-riot police conducted patrols from street to street.

By 3 pm the anticipated protests had not taken place.

The Star counted over eight patrol vehicles with police in full anti-riot gear patrolling the streets.

At Mwembe, the Star counted five more lorries carrying police officers on standby.

Most outlets at the estate, especially eateries, were also looted on Tuesday.

Downtown, pockets of bodaboda riders whistled as the police vehicle passed by.

Traders who spoke to the Star said they were still monitoring the situation before reopening their businesses fully.
