"On the onset of that day only we lost Sh2.7 billion worth of business. There was violence that affected some of our members," said Boniface Gachoka, Secretary General.
He explained that the business was greatly affected in Kisumu where everything was stolen and had to shut down because what they sell is comfort and the majority of people are interested.
Gachoka noted that the association was caught by surprise when they saw the return of demonstrations which were said would be peaceful.
"They did what they did and we are actually counting a very big loss in terms of second largest payers of taxes in Kenya," he said.
