  1. The issue is for companies or traders to put in place safety precautionary measures in place. The victims are poor people who were innocently working to put nsima and ndiwo on the table. Unfortunately, it’s you and me the enlightened and well previlledged people who take advantage of such. So fatty is Important. In case of any lawyer reading my comment please fight for the guys!!!!
