Led by the market chairperson Ann Katile, the residents said that cases of insecurity have began cropping up.

Katile, who spoke to journalists on Tuesday said the police should do night patrols to smoke out the gangs terrorizing residents and business people.

"Cases of insecurity are many, attacks and break- ins are being reported daily, we urge the police to up their game and ensure the culprits are brought to book," he said.

She observed that despite crime being witnessed, no single suspect has been held responsible.

"We are being attacked and our properties stolen but nothing is being done, no one has been arrested and charged," she said. 

This comes two days after a middle aged man was beaten and left for the dead by unknown people.

The man who sustained deep cut wounds is receiving treatment at Kangundo level four hospital.

On Sunday night, armed robbers raided an M-Pesa shop and stole Sh144,000 and a phone.

Tala police boss Samuel Nguyo said his officers were doing all they can to deal with insecurity in the market.
