The Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) has warned viral chips vendor Bevalyne Kwamboka from selling chips under a footbridge.
KURA says she is operating an illegal business.
This came after a member of the public asked KURA through their official Twitter account if the activates that Kwamboka engages in are legal.
KURA responded via the same platform and said it was illegal and an infringement of pedestrian rights.
The authority also said footbridges and walkways are not meant for any form of business rather for pedestrian passage.
“This is illegal and an infringement to Pedestrian rights, The Footbridges and walkways are meant for Pedestrian passage and not any form of business,” KURA replied.
@Levitomzazi: Pedestrian wanapita chini ya footbridge making Mombasa Road express way pedestrian friendly ndo manadraw the line. Mnapanda maua instead of paving it for walkways and cycling. But huyu dame ndo mnatoa makucha shidwee
@ninja_straw: Maybe illegal but very legitimate. We can always coexist with Kenyans who are trying to eke a living even if they have to setup shop by the roadside. She pays taxes so use those taxes to find us a solution on how we can coexist
@JacobAbere: Whichever Answers Thy Give on @bevalynekwambo3 and business location, let KuRA clear those underpass of Muthurwa, Outer-Allsops and along Pangani, before you pick this
@ENGnaftali: Your design is faulty then. The lady is just addressing a need. Hawking is not illegal in Kenya or New York USA
