Rights Radio Report #7: Maasai market man

Maasai MarketAdrian Anyona Oigara runs his family’s business at Maasai Market in Nairobi, Kenya. This 26-year-old sells his art work, which is made of stone from his home village. During the 2007-08 election violence, business stopped at the market, which takes place every weekend in front of the Supreme Court of Kenya.

Since this year’s election – Mar. 4, 2013 – business has slowed dramatically for Oigara. On Saturday Mar. 30, protests were expected as the court announced the winner of the presidential election. Business at the market, outside of the court, still hasn’t returned to normal.
