Vendors appeal for Friday deadline extension
VENDORS operating at undesignated sites in the country’s central business districts have appealed for an extension of their June 26 deadline claiming the new sites identified by the local authorities had inadequate infrastructure.
Local Government minister Ignatius Chombo had given the vendors until Friday to vacate the streets and move to established vending sites.
Initially, government had ordered the vendors to relocate to designated sites by June 1 before moving the deadline to June 26.
However, the National Vendors’ Union Zimbabwe (Navuz) last Friday wrote to Chombo seeking a further extension of the deadline.
