Chitungwiza local council is constructing proper vending stalls in different parts of the town to benefit informal traders whose roadside stalls and illegal structures were destroyed after the government directed local authorities to demolish all illegal structures, The Herald reports.
The council is erecting about 314 stalls at Zengeza 2 Shops and the acting town clerk could not give a full comment on the project’s progress.
Chitungwiza residents under the Chitungwiza Progressive Residents Association (CHITREST) welcomed the initiative and said they hoped the council will be fair in allocating the vending stalls:
- - - Buy NetOne, Telecel Airtime on WhatsApp using EcoCash.
Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -
We don’t want to see people who are not into vending business, the land barons, benefiting at the expense of the vendors.
The council registered all the informal traders two years ago they must do the allocation in the spirit of transparency and fairness
