Mnazi vendors in Kilifi

Kilifi residents want Governor Amason Kingi to do something in terms of basic needs. The Mnazi vendors have been going through difficulties in the hands of Police officers.

Kilifi residents now demand urgent measures to be taken by the county to help them through the cessation as announced by the President.

" President Uhuru Kenyatta allowed Miraa farmers to continue selling their produce. At the Coast, none has been talking about the coconut products,  " Kadzo Jefwa a Mnazi Vendor said.

" The Police stole Sh 16,000, pour Mnazi wine, stole another amount from my friend. We will now deal with Police if the county will not provide a solution, " another Mnazi vendor added.

" No MCA, MP or even the county officials have come out to listen to our grievances. We will go head-on with the Police. Its either they undo us or we undo them, " another Mnazi Vendor said.

Kilifi County has not strategies on how they will handle the presidential directive on cessation. The county has been criticized over the slow move to combat the worsening situation.

More than 200,000 people will face starvation in the county.  The county government set Sh 75 Million on sensitization and another Sh 20 Million on Sanitizers and facemasks. The county is also looking forward to setting aside another Sh 220 Million for food distribution in the county.

President Uhuru Kenyatta announced that three counties along the coastal line will undergo movement restrictions to help combat the fast-spreading virus.

The County Government of Kilifi will have to source for funds to feed the masses who will be affected by the directive. Residents who majority depend on Mombasa county for employment and business activities render the county leadership a massive work of feeding all the locked residents.
