jeep-3

It’s a pitty that a Gym that as been there for more than 10 years and surved local people like mechanics,street vendors and other jua kali artisans will no longer be there.

Its is a sad news that a place where I call my fitness paradise might no longer be available,despite in the open,shaterd fence,weights made of concret and water pipes used as bars this gym as served a lot of people in Health and produced great physiques. It’s going to be difficult for many to adoped since the gym was a good traing spot;Friendly,Cheap and all equipment was improvised.

Reason why the gym wount be there is becauae a private developer is building a car show room,we are not the only ones affected,a nearby church as also lost its parking lot,rumors say that its the land owner who is building the million dolar car empire but as they say if it’s yours do what you want with it but don’t breck the laws

The gym is separeted from the other land by an electrical wire line which means it belong to the government as road reserve,which means no one can use the space as it is now.Despite that he is going to use it by building a wall round it but this is Kenya money talks.
