Two people have so far died and more than 200 treated after developing cholera symptoms.
Mr Kathoga Muriuki, who owns an eatery at Kibunga market has nothing else to do but wait for the county government to call off the ban.
The county is struggling to contain the outbreak even as nurses started a strike on Monday over unpaid allowances.
