Mombasa's Main Marikiti Market - A Heritage Icon formerly known as The Mackinnon Market | Coastweek

TORONTO Canada -- 'Mombasa's Main Marikiti Market - A Heritage Icon formerly known as The Mackinnon Market - has been horribly abused by our politicians with their campaign posters. When shall we Kenyans ever learn to respect, protect and look after our own 'mazingira' ... natural as well as man made.' - R. Parvana, Toronto, Canada.

Mombasa Marikiti Market horribly abused with campaign posters

TORONTO Canada -- Mombasa's Main Marikiti Market - A Heritage Icon formerly known as The Mackinnon Market - has been horribly abused by our politicians with their campaign posters.

For every poster defacing this monumental and historical building, the politician who it depicts must be fined first, a fixed sum per poster regardless of who plastered them.

Then he should be forced to personally go up the walls to clean the mess.

When everything is said and done ...collectively, all the culprits involved in this senseless act must proportionally pay their share to spruce up the exterior of this market with the most expensive exterior paint available in the market.

Anyone disagreeing with this exercise must resign his seat if he has one or then he must be 'banned for life' from standing for any public office anywhere in the country.

I recall those days when the Coastal Admin Authorities under the PC forced businesses located on the main thoroughfares in Mombasa to paint their premises before the annual 'working holiday' visit to Mombasa by Mzee Kenyatta.

When shall we Kenyans ever learn to respect, protect and look after our own 'mazingira' ...natural as well as man made.
