Some of the victims whose businesses were demolished talked to Keydmedia English News from the site and they said it’s unfortunate that their business were destroyed, they said they are not against the idea of development but they would have loved a discussion foremost.

Bakaara market is the largest marketplace in Somalia; there are many structures which were built illegally on the sides of the road thus limiting access to the market by road and most of the times when there is fire outbreak it becomes difficult to bring in emergency services but for now this seems to have been solved. - Mogadishu, Somalia
