According to Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria, he has a responsibility to speak up for Kenyan traders and manufacturers following the reopening of China Square.
Kuria noted that China Square caters to the middle-class people of the country and that the reopening was part of a middle-class conspiracy.
He emphasized that he must provide guidance to the people as their CS.
Kuria further explained that the local traders and manufacturers are the ones who support the Kenyan economy, even though they do not have a voice on social media.
While some middle-class individuals make noise online, the hustlers struggling to make ends meet are not on social media platforms.
Kuria said that he has a duty to speak on behalf of these individuals, particularly the Gikomba and Kamukunji businessman who lacks a voice on Twitter.
These remarks come after China Square reopened its doors following a temporary closure due to a dispute with Kuria.
The Kenya Chinese Chamber of Commerce issued a statement expressing their gratitude for the resumption of operations and called for equal and fair treatment of all businesses to ensure a favorable business environment for everyone.
