Agnes Warengi runs a hairdressing salon and petrol station in Nairobi's Kibera slum.
She is among many businesses planning to shift stock out of the premises ahead of the election on 4 March.
Following the last general election in December 2007, Kibera was one of the flashpoints for ethnic violence after the disputed presidential result.
Agnes spoke to BBC News about her fears that the scenes of five years ago will be repeated and her hopes for the new administration.
