On Tuesday, May 3, Igathe made an early morning tour of the famous Marigiti market were freely mingled with traders.
Sharing his experience on Facebook, Igathe promised to issues affecting traders such as hygiene and security.
“Today I witnessed some of the frustrations our traders continue to encounter daily as they opened their businesses very early in the morning at the Market, City Park, and City Markets.
“Security within the markets, low hygiene standards, and high parking fees…are just some of the issues the traders shared. I plan on working with them to address these issues so that we can have clean and safe markets for the people of Nairobi.” Igathe wrote on Facebook.
Igathe who was controversially endorsed by Azimio bigwigs has been accused by his opponent that he is from a privileged family who has suffered.
At one point exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna has sensationally claimed that former Nairobi deputy governor Polycarp Igathe is the son of late billionaire businessman and political power broker Chris Kirubi.
Polycarp Igathe’s only qualification is that he was sired by one of Kenya’s worst thieves (sic) called Chris Kirubi. Otherwise, he has no charisma, no plan, no traction, and zero support in Nairobi. He must be defeated,” Miguna said in a Tweet.
