are tired of landlords who keep on increasing rent fees, I think the authorities
should intervene in this matter because, all most after six months or yearly
the rental fees are increased which isn’t fair, can’t they first study the
situation the traders are going through before hiking the rental fees?” wondered
further added that landlords do not involve traders when going to increase rent
fees, and they don’t show interest in listening to their views.
angry traders started pelting stones at the building and burning car tyres on
the road until police intervened.
the protest started the police were deployed to calm down the situation and
soon later traders were engaged in running battles.
