Lilongwe Vendors Back in Streets

Scores of vendors in Lilongwe are back in the streets but the vendors association said Thursday it was not aware why its members had decided to go back.

Chairperson of Lilongwe Vendors Association Steven Malunga said the association is yet to meet with city council authorities and police on the way forward.

“I cannot say why the vendors are back in the streets because I was away.  I came back today (Thursday) and found vendors already in the streets,” said Malunga.

Lilongwe city council spokesperson Tamara Chafunya also said the council will shortly meet the vendors to map the way forward.

“We are planning to meet the vendors very shortly,” corroborated Chafunya.

Former president the late Bingu wa Mutharika did not tolerate street vending and dealt with any illegal vending with an iron fist.

But shortly after the death of president Mutharika, vendors were seen back in the streets of Lilongwe city.

In Malawi vendors have a political stake in that they are one large component of society that votes during elections—Zodiak Online

What? There is no way vendors can be one large component of society. Tell me they are vocal, yes!
