In a demonstration of love and good neighborliness, Thika traders donated goods worth KES. 1million to Solai-Nakuru as they consoled the dam tragedy victims.

Led by their chairman Samson Kariuki and Thika Red cross personnel, they traveled all the way in trucks, matatus and private cars stuffed with clothes, blankets and foodstuffs. 

The traders called on the county governments all over the country to be on the forefront in fighting tragedies adding that they should set aside a kitty for disaster emergencies.

They also called on other well-wishers to follow suit saying what was more required at Solai was construction materials to help settle the victims as most of them are still sleeping in nearby schools.

Samson Njau who is the Thika market traders chairman said that they are now mobilizing donations to take to Tana River County which is also affected by floods.

He called on Kenyans to heed the President Uhuru Kenyatta’s call to plant trees saying that the impact of the dam tragedy would not have been that severe if the area had a good tree cover.

Among those who sent their donations were Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu who gave them 200 bales of Unga.
