Londiani Junction Traders Resume Their Daily Routine
Londiani Junction Traders have returned to their regular routines after a devastating accident occurred at the location that claimed 52 lives.
In a conversation with the media, the traders acknowledged their concerns about personal safety but gathered strength from the sombre memories to provide for their families.
“This is where we get our daily bread, so we decided to come back. Our children have no food, there is nowhere else we can go.” Miriam, a trader at the said junction told journalists.

“I have been telling my colleagues that I am scared to sit here, but we have to be courageous as there are no other jobs,” another trader said.
A group of fortunate traders narrowly escaped death when a truck collided with numerous vehicles, motorcycles, and traders at the roadside market. Although the area is gradually returning to normalcy, the container responsible for the extensive damage remains unrecovered at the scene.
“We are waiting for KRA to come and break the seal, and offload the cement. The OCPD has been trying to call the owner of the truck but he has not been picking,” Kipkelion East MP Joseph Cherorot said.
