Kasunda: new by-laws for buyers

Eye witnesses disclosed that on Friday, January 23 2015 around lunch hour vendors trading near Standard Bank commonly known as Kachere mercilessly took the law in their own hands and were joined by mini bus call boys and other u identified groups of people in chasing the law enforcers with stones.

There was no immediate reaction from the police or the Council on the matter but on Wednesday,  BCC Public Relations Manager Anthony Kasunda told the national broadcaster  MBC that the council would impose tough measures to punish the vendors who will not abide by the Council’s By-Laws.

The PRM also disclosed that Blantyre City Council would also introduce by-laws to punish the buyers.

It  is yet to be seen when this will come into effect otherwise life has been tough for Blantyre City Council with most of their vehicles on the patrol errands smashed by irate people that does not only include vendors but sympathizers and those who hide behind the street vendors like criminals and mini bus touts.

    vending and min bus parking should be stopped in the whole part from Shire highlands hotel up to lonro and the who livingstone avenue. people should learn to respect the law and if need be the city council should deploy soldiers to enforce this. let those vending in such areas do so at their risk.
