Maize Roasting Vendors Flood Bulawayo CBD
Bulawayo City fathers have bemoaned an upsurge in the number of illegal maize roasting vendors in the City’s Central Business District.
As a result, the council has been forced to chase after the vendors who present a fire hazard.
Parts of the minutes submitted by the director of health services read in part:
The population of these vendors has increased to virtually every street corner. These vendors were using hot charcoal which could also be a fire hazard. He also observed scrap metal refuse was an eyesore and had not been collected in the city for a long time.
Chamber secretary Sikhangele Zhou said that the enforcement by-laws regarding maize roasting were in progress, adding that an operation to weed the vendors out of the CBD was underway.
