In his address to the crowd,Ngatia promised to address issues related to congestion at Muthurwa market as well as putting in place measures that will help hawkers do business without harassment.
” We know the challenges being faced at Muthurwa market and hawkers being harassed quite often.We are going to fix everything,Ngatia,” Ngatia said.
Ngatia also rallied Nairobi traders behind the Azimio La Umoja movement and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
” We are in Azimio and we are saying that the future is safe in the hands of Raila Amolo Odinga,” Ngatia told the electrified crowd.
At the meeting with disabled people,Ngatia promised to ensure more disabled people are employed at City Hall and the county assembly.
” Disabled people have remained marginalised for along time and that is going to change once we get into office,”Ngatia added.
