The Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition protests, led by former prime minister Raila Odinga, have left several businesses counting losses.

During the demonstrations, which affected Nairobi and Kisumu, some shops and retailers were vandalized and looted.

Muhindi Mweusi Supermarket in Tasia, Embakasi, was among the retailers that lost goods worth millions. The supermarket’s operations manager, Peter Maguli, revealed that they lost goods valued at KSh 15 million, including assorted goods, TV sets, gas cylinders, and mattresses.

“We lost goods and property estimated at KSh 15 million. These include assorted goods, TV sets, gas cylinders and mattresses,” Maguli told Tuko.co.ke.

Maguli explained that a group of youth approached the shop armed with stones and machetes, broke the main entrance, and stole the goods. The supermarket remains closed until further notice.

The protests have negatively affected the county’s revenue collections, according to Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja.

During the launch of the second Rapid Results Initiative wave on Tuesday, he revealed that the daily revenue collections plunged by half, and several infrastructures were left in a sorry state.

The Governor stated that they only managed to collect Sh30.3 million on Monday, hugely collected from land rates and parking fees, which were done digitally. He added that if the same trend continues weekly, it would be unsustainable.

Governor Sakaja urged the police to charge those caught on camera damaging public and private infrastructure. Kisumu Governor Professor Anyang’ Nyong’o also asked the police to probe and arrest the goons who took advantage of the protests
