Eastleigh traders close shop over high taxes


Eastleigh Traders’ Association yesterday closed 70 malls with more than 10,000 retail shops to protest high taxes on ready-made garments.

Chairman Ibrahim Hussein said they won’t reopen until the government holds talks with them.

The closure affected small-scale traders who rely on the malls for business, including transporters, hawkers, food vendors, porters and boda boda operators.
