Multimedia: Vendors brace for war
A POTENTIALLY explosive fight is looming in Harare today as thousands of vendors yesterday vowed to resist a government directive to relocate to “dusty” sites.
Town Clerk Tendai Mahachi insisted that all was set for the relocation to the different sites despite indications the areas were not conducive as they have no proper facilities including stalls and toilets.
Zimbabwe Informal Traders Organisation (Ziso) official Promise Mkhwananzi said it would be business as usual and vendors were ready to defend their “workstations”.
“It’s business as usual because government has not provided any alternative, so we have no choice, but to stay in the streets,” he said.
