A section of Kenyans on the Internet have supported the Chinese traders in various markets who have been accused of taking away jobs.

They are calling for fare business practices saying the Chinese should not be discriminated against.

Tens of Chinese traders have opened shops in the crowded, informal markets that have for decades served as the entry points for second-hand clothes and cheap Chinese imports.
