Nairobi to establish two new markets

City moves hawkers out of central Nairobi

The county government of Nairobi is to construct two new markets as part of its plans to move hawkers away from the city centre.
The Mwariro market will be relocated to Kariokor, about two km north-east of the centre, while the Karandini market will be moved to the Dagoretti district in east Nairobi.
The initiative is part of a move by the city governor Mike Sonko to remove hawkers from central Nairobi where they have been a "menace" for years.

The new modern markets will be constructed with funding of Sh650 million from the World Bank and construction is expected to begin before February.
