Traders operating in Kenya didn’t encounter any major challenges during the just concluded elections.

This is according to the spokesperson KACIITA, Isa Sekitto who says the traders were prepared in time for alternative routes and many used the southern route.

Sekitto says that the Malaba boarder was also clear despite a few hiccups on the Election Day where clearing agents kept away.

He says the association is already compiling a list of the few affected traders for intervention.

The violence that erupted after the 2007 polls paralyzed business at the boarder with Kenya with the losses suffered by the traders estimated at close to a trillion Shillings.
