Last week, a least 27 informal traders were arrested while six were seriously injured when Harare municipal police fought running battles with street vendors as the bitter war to clean up the capital’s streets escalated.
The vendors were refusing to move from the central business district (CBD) to designated sites on the city’s outskirts.
The government had given vendors across the country until June 26 to leave undesignated trading sites, but the ultimatum was largely ignored.
Vendors said the government must first deliver on its promise of 2,2 million jobs made in the run-up to the 2013 elections. by Thobekile Zhou.Source: Byo24News
