KIBERA AFTER MONDAY DEMO

Most of landlord  are worried that unless both group the goverment  and opposition agree on the way forward the youth may  use the demo to distruct properties in the name of demo.
  Alandlord who gives his name as Jacob Ominde said some youth went ahead to broke toilets in  search of human waste making them unuseble and also using other items including chairs and timbers as weapons to attack police officers.
 For Emily Akinyi landlady and  mandas hawker things   were different agroup of women approached her  and order her to join demo as they pick madas and  firewood which they used to attack police officers and those who refused to join them and at the end of the day no business as usual.
James Kamau who had been  staying in Kibera for man years even during Moi era fracus noted tha during such demo  landlord suffered alot because some people destroye there properties and even refused to pay rent giving example of those who had refused to pay rent since 2007 in  Katwekera adding that this time they will say  let move IBC fist before  we pay rent and life goes lke that.
For him Kamau believes that        talk by both side is the lonely solution.
