25 September 2012, 14:55 Steve Wambugu

More than 300 hawkers within Nakuru town are demanding the local authorities to review their levies saying they were exorbitant.

The hawkers said the authorities should not levy high fees at this time when the economy is tough to ordinary Kenyans.

Their representative Mr John Mrefu said for conducive working environment the local Municipal Council should liase with the hawkers and agree on how  to review the fees.

The workers  who spoke on Tuesday morning at the on going forum organized  by a youth group lobby led by Mr Elijah Githee who is involved in sensitizing the youth on the importance of participating in governance.

The hawkers also complained of harassment by the Council Askaris and said they should have better civil way of handling wayward hawkers.
“We are tired of how the council Askaris have been harassing us within the town and yet we have already paid the fee, they should be civil when dealing the normal Kenyans”

Githee said the youth had an opportunity to transform the country by participating in the electoral process.

"We can only hold our next leaders accountable when we vet and carefully elect them basing on their agenda for the youth" he said.

He added that time  when youth were misused by some individuals for their own selfish gain was long gone and that with the new constitution credible leaders should be elected.
