The Solicitor General has halted the eviction of Napier Market vendors pending the investigations by the Inspector General of Government (IGG). In a May 21 letter to the tenants’ chairman, Juma Kange, the Solicitor General said the allocation of the stalls had been mismanaged. “Since there is evidence of abuse of office and corruption by the former LC5 chairman, the mayor and the district land board, the shops should be re-allocated after the IGG’s report is released.” The letter added that the vendors should be given the first priority to develop the market.
