Victims of the recent Marsabit old Market fire have this afternoon received a helping hand from the County Woman representative Safia Sheikh Adan.
Speaking when she visited the market and issued traders with Sh.300, 000 and 300 iron sheets, Ms. Adan lamented at the lack of disaster preparedness in the region and pledged to push for interventions in emergency and disaster responses department.
“What happened on Tuesday was tragic. We need to up our disaster and emergency response services in the future to cushion residents against such losses” Said the Woman Representative.
The traders who lost property worth millions of shillings in the Tuesday inferno lauded the move by Ms. Safia and appealed to other well-wishers to help them rebuild their lives.
