Vendors Initiative for Social and Economic Transformation(VSET) has revealed that the government is vowing to construct new marketing structures for vendors who lost illegal cabins, and stalls through the ongoing demolition operation by Harare City Council.

In an interview today with the State Of The Nation, Director of the VISET Mr.S. Wadzai said they condemn the move by Council to destroy cabins, and stalls without notifying vendors though they are happy that the government promised to build new structures to replace those that were destroyed.

“They did not approach us before they started the demolition of the cabins, and stalls of our vendors. They should have notified us before the implementation of the demolition,  unfortunately, that did not happen and they did it in a violent manner”.

“The authorities are promising to erect new structures so that those who lost their illegal cabins, and stalls can continue with their vending businesses.

“They are reasoning that they are going to make use of the lockdown period to build new structures, ” he said.

VSET Director said that the demolition of illegal cabins, and stalls is an operation which is being done nationwide.

“This is a countrywide operation. There are proposed sites where they are going to construct market places for the vendors, ” he said.
