Vendors rejoice in new site

Following a public outcry about the state of affairs at Sakubva Open market the Mutare City Council has moved vendors to a new market.

The old Sakubva produce market was described as a health time bomb as vendors were operating without proper ablution facilities or shelter from rain and sun.

The area was an eyesore with a heavy stench coming from uncollected rotting farm produce.

“We are happy that our local authority has responded to our plight. The new market is decent and we hope they will continue with the good work,” said Mercy Nyangani.

The Director of Housing and Community Services, Sternard Mapurisa, said the local authority was committed to improve the welfare of its residents but lack of funding was a handicap to council initiatives to improve service delivery.
