Traders at the Kongowea Market in Mombasa demand investigations over killing of Chair

24 June 2016, 20:27 Gabriel Ngallah

Nairobi - Barely a day after Kongowea market Chair Daniel Ndunga Ndii was burnt to death in his house at Kongowea in Mombasa, traders at the market have appealed to the police to conduct a thorough investigation over the killing of Mr. Ndii.

The over 700 traders operating different business within the largest market facility at the Coast have read mischief in the death of Ndii saying that it was not as a result of an accident or power fault inside his house.

The locals Led By Veronicah Njuguna said that Mr. Ndii was leaving in fear since his election as the Chairman of the market after his predecessor Ali Mtsumi decided to call it a quit citing many wrangles and politics within the market leadership.

Veronicah termed the death of Mr. Ndii as a result of leadership wrangles which have marred the market since Mtsumi quitted insisting that the cause may be a well planned scheme which led to the murder of the Kongowea market head.

“We want the security agents to conduct a thorough investigation to unleash what transpired before the death of Daniel Ndunga Ndii” revealed Mrs. Njuguna.

The traders who operate different food and cloth kiosks united together with those working on the vegetables, cereal and livestock side of the market in demanding security actions to arrest those behind the death of the Kongowea market Chairperson.

“He was killed since his wife traveled to up country the same day morning on Wednesday before the fatal night, police should act on this inhumane habit within our market leadership” added Veronicah.

However, Kisauni OCDP Richard Ngatia assured the traders that Police have already launched investigation over the same matter and they should not be worried.

“We are yet to establish whether it was an accident or it was a planed incident but we are up to the task, let us maintain calm as investigation take its course” he said.
