City of Harare promise to accommodate vendors in approved spaces

Overall Project

Vendors/ informal workers’ unions input for sites 1%
Accommodate vendors in approved spaces 3%
Identify and prepare alternate workplaces for informal traders 1%

City officials have promised to accommodate vendors in approved spaces that will be designated for use by market vendors once the lockdown is lifted.

“The city of Harare and other local authorities are already in the process of identifying and preparing alternate workplaces for informal traders,” Chidawu and Gomba said in their joint statement.

But Wadzai said the committees deciding how to allocate and use those spaces had not reached out to any vendors or informal workers’ unions for their input.

“It is not fair for the authorities to take advantage of COVID-19 lockdown to attack the livelihoods of people and without any consultation,” he said over the phone.
