Gweru City Council to relocate vendors and kombi operators from undesignated areas in the CBD
Gweru City Council is set to relocate vendors operating from undesignated areas in the central business district to a site in the industrial areas.
Town Clerk, Ms Elizabeth Gwatipedza said vendors were now selling farm produce and clothing outside shops and banks while retailers who pay substantial amounts in rates and water services to council were complaining that illegal vendors were taking away their customers and causing congestion on pavements. Gwatipedza also said kombis operating from undesignated areas were promoting lawlessness as those that are registered are now abandoning their official termini.
She revealed that they had constructed sheds at the new site to protect the vendors and their products from weather conditions. Gwatipedza said the vendors will be relocated once a toilet is constructed.
