Traders of Eronge Market in Monyerero ward, Kitutu chache North, Kisii County are pleading for help as their oldest Market in the region Rots. According to residents the Market that has existed for more than 40years now has no incoming passable road, Shades, Lights nor a toilet. Speaking to journalist in Eronge, the residents are asking the newly elected MCA Hon. Methuselah Ogero to act with speed and rescue the state of the market as they have threatened to close the market if action will not be taken.
“We are suffering this market is a disaster. The problem we have right now it has been raining we don’t have shades, its dark now as you see we don’t have even a single light which forces us to close business early. The market does not have even a single toilet even the road you are seeing you can’t pass if you don’t have gumboots” Cried Lorna Mogusu who is a trader.
“Our MCA is not serious. Even if he is new he should follow up the matter and rescue the market. We have never seen him he keeps threatening the people who are at the front line asking for the construction of the market. He has never addressed us so that we know what is going on because the out gone MCA had already started plans” Said one trader who refused to be mentioned.
According to reliable reports the new MCA has been threatening volunteers who have come together to follow up the matter. Up to now traders stopped paying tax until the market is fully constructed. According to Methuselah he said the contractor who was assigned the duty to build the market has never should up and he does not know him.
“Let nobody blame me nor the Governor. There is a contractor who was given that job and i don’t know him. Let them be patient i will follow up the matter” Said Hon. Ogero
