Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has come to the aid of Toi Market operators after fire gutted their places of work on Tuesday morning.
Sonko gave the business people sh5 million to help them in restocking their businesses and also assured them his government will build the market afresh.
The cause of the fire that broke out at about 3am Tuesday is yet to be known.
No casualty was reported but locals say they lost property worth millions. The fire spread fast bringing down a number of stalls even as neighbours rushed to contain it before engines arrived.
