For the traders of Makongeni's Madaraka Market, Job 14:7 must have come in handy for them. (For those who don't know, it says;- At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail.) Madaraka Market Tuesday morning started springing back to life after the cowardly and impish act by hired goons who reduced their foodstuff to ashes.

After clearing the debris yesterday afternoon, the traders woke up today to pick from where they had left before the fire incident. Even though business was below par, those we spoke to were very optimistic that they would rise up again and triumph. None was ready to bow down into giving up hope to walk again.

Majority of the traders were busy preparing their work areas in preparation for their next consignment. Others were busy trying to put up some temporary make-shift structures that would shield their perishable foods from direct sunlight.

All we saw were a determined lot that was not ready to surrender.

As the Thika Town Today team, we could only conclude one thing, 'Níkúrí na mwìhoko thutha mútì gútemwo tondú gìthukì nì gìthundúku' ( There is hope after the cutting of the tree for the stump has started sprouting).
