Nairobi's Woodley MCA, Davidson Ngibuini, widely known as DNG, has written an open letter to President William Ruto, expressing his opposition to the planned demolition of informal trading places (vibandas) in his ward.

The demolitions, scheduled for today along the Ngong Road-Kibera-Langata Link Road, will be executed by the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA).

"I am perplexed at how such a poor and irrational decision can be made with a full understanding that the Kenya Kwanza Government is a hustler regime," DNG stated, emphasizing the shared commitment to the 'Every Hustle Matters' ethos of the Kazi Ni Kazi platform.

The MCA highlighted what he considered a contradiction between the ruling party's symbol, the wheelbarrow, and the actions of a government agency, characterizing the planned evictions as a betrayal of promises made to citizens.

Questioning the selective and punitive nature of KURA's decision, specifically targeting his ward, the UDA legislator described the move as a breach of trust and a manifestation of poor governance.

In suggesting an alternative solution, DNG recommended the construction of modern kiosks along Ngong Road and the link road.

Despite obtaining approval from county authorities and positive responses from traders and residents, the project has been hindered by KURA's lack of approval—a matter the MCA urged President Ruto to address.

"Your government will be judged by how it handled the weakest, the poorest, and the most vulnerable of its population. This decision by KURA goes against everything we believe in and stand for," DNG added.

He called on President Ruto to directly intervene, preventing the demolitions and evictions, thereby preserving the dignity and livelihoods of the hustlers and upholding the values and promises of the UDA government.
