Small-scale traders in Nairobi are planning a peaceful demonstration against China Square, the cheapest supermarket in the city, claiming that it is dominating the market.
Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Korir Sing’oei defended China Square, stating that Kenya’s investment regime is non-arbitrary and non-discriminatory.
Investment, Trade, and Industry Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria wants the supermarket out of the Kenyan market.
Kuria urges Kenyatta University Vice Chancellor to buy out the lease for the establishment and hand it over to traders associations.
Kuria blames former Interior CS Fred Matiang’i for the controversy, claiming he issued permits to Chinese traders at the mall.
