What you need to know:

  • The traders believed that the Kenyatta regime had deliberately launched a war against them.
  • Politicians allied to Ruto in 2022 repeatedly accused then-President Uhuru Kenyatta of killing Nyamakima traders' businesses to promote "dynasties".
  • The traders now want the Kenya Kwanza Alliance government to fulfill its pre-election promises.
